A select few good words we've received: 'Mixing vintage garage rock with punkish roots and elements of psychedelica into a heady brew of their own creation, the Screens are perhaps the best unsigned band in America right now. This is the kind of no-frills rock & roll that Bomp! Records founder Greg Shaw practically invented (or at least nurtured), the Screens delivering a potent musical elixir to chase away those corporate-rock blues.' MONDOGORDO.COM - ALT CULTURE GUIDE, JAN.05 ".they'rere like being run over by a train carrying The Kinks, Jet and The HivesThey'rere loudthey'rere fast, and they possess a lot of power." RIFT MAGAZINE DECEMBER, 2004 I can't tell you how special it is to have a 3-song EP from a first time, self-released band this high [on the CMJ charts]. It says something about how good the music is. JERRY STELLER, VITRIOL RADIO PROMOTION 'The Screens are the first 'unsigned' band in years I really have any belief in.' MIHKEL RAUD, BEATWIRE.COM.
