In its first week of release, new Connections record has received critical praise from NPR and Stereogum – the former calling Connections “five guys with loud amps blasting out of a basement on a regular basis in service of keeping some manner of truth in rock ‘n’ roll.” HeyReverb calls Midnight Run one of the best albums of 2016 so far. Midnight Run is available on vinyl – here – and available digitally everywhere else.
