“Smug Brothers newest album is one of their strongest efforts to date. A tight, urgent, and catchy blend of indie rock from rock Mecca Dayton, Ohio.” -Daniel Taylor, The Fire Note [thefirenote.com]

“'90s and '00s era indie rock and power pop is deeply embedded in the DNA of Dayton, Ohio's Smug Brothers and for good reason...the effort delivers a shining beacon that proves Dayton artistry is still a formidable force to be reckoned with on the indie rock landscape in 2015.” -Tim Anderl, Ghettblaster Magazine [ghettoblastermagazine.com]

"The catchy, arena-worthy guitar melodies of the standout single heard here is the perfect summation of the excellent new album." -Justin Kreitzer, Atlas and the Anchor [atlasandtheanchor.com]

"i love smug brothers even though i havent written about them as much as i should have. ... just listen to the damn song, enjoy, and buy their records. they got a bunch, but i would say this is their best one so far. definitely top 15 record status." Gregor, Captains Dead [http://captainsdead.com/smug-brothers-meet-a-changing-world.html]

"After reading about Smug Brothers, I went and downloaded three of their albums from their Bandcamp. That’s pretty much what I have been listening to all week long. The new one is called Woodpecker Paradise and it’s a mighty fine record. They are from Dayton, Ohio, Don Thrasher plays the drums and they perfectly master the art of writing short indie rock tunes. So yeah, Guided By Voices is obviously the name that comes to mind. Which I love of course." One Chord to Another [http://www.onechord.net/2015/05/17/satans-fingers-the-rollstons-smug-brothers/]
