SLUG Local CD Review

There are so many great elements to this record. Triggers & Slips grab a handful of Honky Tonk, a bit of alt country, and just enough Southern Rock to not be annoying about it.

If songs like “Old Friends” were getting played on country radio stations, you couldn’t stop me from tuning in, but alas, delightful tunes that reach out and grab me like this one rarely get that recognition.

If you’re even a little bit interested in hearing some very satisfying country and Americana music, please check out Triggers & Slips. You won’t regret it. –James Orme SLUG Magazine

Featuring well-worded, occasionally poignant material written by the band's frontman Morgan Snow, the bopping country-rock grooves are anchored by the top-shelf musicianship of bandmates John Davis, Zach Griffin and Wil Grimshaw.

On standout tracks like "Old Friends," "4 Letters" and "Aftermath," the band mixes solid lyrics with interesting melodies that are firmly rooted in the country tradition, but never sound clichéd or copied.

Trigger & Slipsis a top-flight country-rock cd on par with many better known acts in this populous genre.

The only light left in the room was a three-way lamp above the band with one of the bulbs burned out. This meant two things: I'd be using a flash, and the bar is now a candidate for LCD lighting.
