"Menace and mystery surround this female Jesus and Mary Chain, whose vocals cut like honey-coated razor blades" - The Guardian
"Tashaki Miyaki has a sound to them that is both very old and new at the same time, with a haunting beauty that fascinates me. Listening to their music brings to mind something of a mix of David Lynch and the Cowboy Junkies, but not because of a comparable look or style, but because of the emotional resonance of their unique sound." - CBS News
"...so pretty I'm afraid saying anything else might diminish it." - FADER
" [Tashaki Miyaki] are being touted as the female Jesus and Mary Chain thanks to dreamy songs like "Somethin' is Better Than Nothin,'" and we're not about to argue." - NYLON magazine
" It has that heavy, heavy, sullen feeling at the start.. and once the sullen vocals kick in I'm totally won over, every single time." - NME
The songs that Jesus Sons write serve as explicit documentation of living in modern day America. The lyrics are filled with shady characters from the back streets of San Francisco and beyond. The ones lurking in the shady corners of your local watering hole, taking long drags off their cigarettes. Their breath stained of cheap whiskey. The music is the product of each members' geographical origins colliding together. Two hometown buds from Idaho lay down vocals, guitar, harmonica and drums, two boys from Los Angeles bring in the bass and slide guitar and a lone ranger rings in the tasteful lead guitar and harmonica from Iowa. The five boys of Jesus Sons dust each song with their experiences of growing up in a troubled time. There is an uneasiness underneath their youthful, determined soundtrack for the modern day motorcycle riding, fast driving, whiskey and beer drinking, freedom seeking kids of today and tomorrow.
“Get Lost” is immediately characterized by its opening moments. An emotive, fuzzy bassline starts off. “Save me from myself / Save me from myself,” croons the lead singer. Then the song hits its stride, with a locked-in groovy rock feel, allowing the trio to fire off some reserve and let go by the song’s middle section, with a swirling guitar shining in the mix. Altogether, the track’s individual parts raise the dead and cast a hellacious daze for head-bobbing and headbanging. L.A. Witch fire off all cylinders in their newest track, which is a fiery, slow-burning jam. Throughout the song’s brief length (it’s no epic, which is good, because they make each section worth adoring over and over), you get the tasty side of the band’s output and it leaves nothing undesired. It just leaves burning sensation for more” – PREFIX MAGAZINE
