WHOA - an immediate power pop classic, a perfect fit for a majority of Not Lamers -no question. Evoking sounds of Swedish power pop bands like The Merrymakers and Beagle and classic melodicisms of Teenage Fanclub with vocals that sound like a combination of Badfinger and The Hollies. 11 tracks that deftly blend Crazy Horse ragged glory with pure
power pop craftsmanship... The guitar interplay between Ryan Beerman and Jeremy Knibbs is warm and fuzzy, while the harmonies are consistently spot on and shimmering" - Exclaim. "The Decline is an excellent album full of classic pop songwriting, gentle country-tinged sounds and wonderful singing... This is simply fantastic music and I`m already in love with Elvyn." - One Chord To Another
"We`ve found the missing link between Teenage Fanclub and The Replacements. The influences run deep here, and Big Star lies at the intersection of the two seminal bands referenced above, so there`s that sound to consider as well....Wonderfully melodic, there`s nothing in `decline` about their sound and they`ve got a definite top 10 of `10 contender on their hands!" - Absolute Power Pop blog. "Starting with the stellar "Those Were The Days", it`s got a jangle similar to Teenage Fanclub, and the rootsy folk harmonies of The Jayhawks... The consistent quality of the musicianship and songwriting are what puts this band over the top. It`s not to be missed." - Power Pop Aholic blog. Prepare to hear much more from this band but for now, Elvyn`s "The Decline" has pushed a whole lot of great records from 2010 for place in many pop lovers` Top Of The Year lists. EXTREMELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
