“...that’s the pulverizing power of the Freedom Band, the four-piece unit—bassist Mikal Cronin, guitarist Emmett Kelly, keyboardist Ben Boye, and drummer Charlie Moothart—that has backed Segall onstage since 2016, and has pushed him to new levels of heaviness and face-melting gnarliness in concert, even as his songwriting on record has become more refined.”  - Pitchfork
“For the past decade, Segall has been on a rampage through the American underground, recording and touring at a breakneck pace. His records melt together classic rock’s chops, punk’s DIY ethos and garage rock’s crunch into a speedball of sound.” - Rolling Stone
