What do people say about Big Rock Candy Mountain
"Just the first minute of opener "Rocketship" reveals a band with a drill bit intensity and creative moxie akin to At The Drive-In, Jane's Addiction and Nirvana, with a similar mixture of complexity and beautifully ragged elements."
- Dennis Cook, Jambase - read the full review here.
“Big Rock's sound is defined by both by its sparkling, effervescent melodies and its raw rhythmic sensibility. They demonstrate their drama by whipping back and forth between frenetic, distorted charges and delicate, self-aware passages that aren't afraid to retreat a little. It is a pinpoint reflection of their New Orleans home town, a city that wears all of its colors on its sleeve, from vibrant highs to grittiest lows.”

"Its like Queens of the Stoneage meets the Beach Boys with synthesizers."
- Some girl.
"The opening number 'Rocketship' is pure sensory overload—chaotic, euphoric, overpowering and inescapable. The rest of the songs on Hey Kid are just as maddening. The hysterical opus, 'I Am the Storm,' swims through a sea of feedback and trippy art punk, while the pulsating distortion of 'Hey Kid Give Me Your Money' erupts into a vehement, overdriven freakout."
