"If The Arcade Fire were a band capable of seeing their own mistakes, they might try to find a band to emulate to get back on track. Enter The Press, who’s doing it better and faster than anyone else, including the heavily touted runners up mentioned above."
"Remember how teachers and parents would always tell the other children, “Billy’s not weird… he’s just… unique”? Well then, let’s just say that The Press is unique."
"The band's sound on the EP ranges from high-octane, in your face parts to more melodic, straight-forward pop."
"This is music that sounds road-tested and at the same time serves as a heady advertisement for the band's live show. It is also sufficiently accomplished that it suggests this is an act ready to record a full-length CD."
"The band juxtaposes Modest Mouse-ish grandeur with endearingly madcap passages on its strong new EP, "Milk, and the Times that Never Were." "
GNR014 | The Press
Goodnight Records is thrilled to deliver the newest release from The Press, “Milk, and the Times that Never Were.” The Press recorded their first two releases, the “Noxious Saucy Beast” EP, and “The Red Comes Ringin’” 7-inch, at Atlanta’s now infamous Shangri-La Studios. Sadly, a marriage combined with an shrinking demand for 2-inch tape recording led to the closure of engineer Will Loftin’s cozy home away-from-home. After a little prodding and some ATM visiting, Mr. Loftin agreed to let The Press borrow his gear to record their newest batch of songs in a friend’s living room. After laying down the drums, The Press moved to New York to reunite with Johnny “Jangles” Walsh, where the happy foursome completed the project over the next several months during the wee hours of the night, much to the chagrin of their ever-sleepy neighbors, who go to their jobs wearing cone-shaped sleeping caps that are wilted near the top and have fuzzballs at the point.
