Keith Morris, GTFU Radio : "the psychedelic Jonas Brothers"
NPR Song Of The Day : http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=12679190
The Needle Drops/NPR : “It goes without saying where the music was recorded and what it was recorded on, but the rough sound give them an inescapable Moldy Peaches quality.”
The Fader Fort Live Video Performance : http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/webseries/watch/v1480377Tp7Hn69r
SPIN Magazine: “Together the two's vocals, paired with their brand of sunshine lo-fi, teeter on the shrill end, a la the beginnings of electric-Dylan.”
URB: Their 60s influenced, easy going sound contrasts well with rugged love ballad lyrics and keep listeners in head-bobbing, foot tapping heaven.
American Songwriter: “Drug Rug plays a mightily banged-up mix of blues, rock and country that,in spite of itself, manages to be insanely catchy and full of perk….the Rug spits venom and sugar
into their eponymous debut with gleeful disregard for convention.”
My Old Kentucky Blog : “Drug Rug is the boyfriend/girlfriend duo of Sarah Cronin and Thomas Allen. They obviously haven't been together that long because the songs are still so happy and shiny.” Like a lot of bands, it's The Byrds and Beach Boys meet the indie stylings of today.”
