SWEET TALK: "With so many bands looking to the 80's for inspiration, rummaging through the dustbins of a more distant past may seem like a revelation. So it goes on the new self-titled album of Boston-based Township (out 10/28) on tracks like "Beaver Fever" and "Sinister Minister," where the songs are as good as their titles' rhymes and the band works up a churning 70's funk while it sweats out classic riffs. With sludgy grooves, scorching solos, and Southern Gothic operas, Township fires off a series of timeless anthems that resonate like sun-bleached Polaroids." - Boston Magazine, October 2008
"The band had my attention from the get-go, especially with the song "Highway," which has this irresistible build to it; it's now one of my favorite driving songs. The buzz at the show was late 70's sound, and comparisons to Faces and Lynyrd Skynyrd were made; all I know is, when the band locked eyes with the audience and said "Let's get sexy," (tearing out the song "Big Bad") it made me get sexy, too....Rochester likes you, too, Township." - Rochester City Newspaper, May 2008
"Like Sabbath and Purple but Blacker and Deeper" - The Boston Phoenix
"Hefty drum beats, devastating guitar explosions, some Who-style vocals and we're just happy as clams to give them some love" - Light in the Attic
"Township’s awe-inspiring rock histrionics are very present and the hits literally keep coming...Comin
Driven by a love for the raw guitar melodies of instrumental surf hits of the 60's, The Concrete Rivals combine the reverb-drenched sounds of The Ventures and Dick Dale with the straight-ahead rock and speed of The Who and early Metallica.
