5 stars ★★★★★ review of SULFUR CITY via the LA Examiner

When you visit the Sulfur City website, you will see the headline “Grunge Gospel Punk Blues Stomp Dance Scream”. Can it really be all of those styles? Amazingly the answer is yes. It is all of those things mixed together in a wonderful musical stew. – READ THE REVIEW HERE

Nice SULFUR CITY review via CLASSIC ROCK

Where’s me washboard? A star is born. Fronted by electric washboard-toting powerhouse Lori Paradis, Ontario band Sulfur City have unleashed a speaker-shredding blues-rock tornado with Talking Loud, which sits beautifully with labelmates the Black Keys but also harbours an intoxicating, multi-hued diversity. Former truck driver Paradis towers throughout, evoking Joplin, Slick and even Patti Smith […]

Nice KING MUD review in Elmore Magazine

Sometimes, great things come out of random collaboration. King Mud collaborated with Van Campbell from The Black Diamond Heavies and Freddy J IV from Left Lane Cruise to create Victory Motel Sessions.

9/10 review of The BONNEVILLES “Arrow Pierce My Heart” from MAXIMUM VOLUME

4 headphones ★★★★ review of KING MUD from The FIRE NOTE

The debut release from King Mud is raw, muscular and full of distorted hard blues rock that will have you grinding your own air guitar in minutes. The band is no stranger to this sound or record label as King Mud features members of Left Lane Cruiser, The Black Diamond Heavies and Radio Moscow. That […]

4 beers ★★★★ review of KING MUD from I94 BAR

You could jump in just about anywhere and soak yourself in the blues. King Mud never strays far from the wellspring. Freddy J’s raunchy guitar and voce are stand-outs, especially on the dirty “War Dancers” and the swampy “Blood River”. Campbell’s feels drive the songs nicely and he’s not one to break into showboating in […]
