“I’ve had this album for less than 48 hours. I’ve played it five times. It’s very, very, very good. The Stepkids have built that expectation with two singles, [and] the album is no let down. It’s an exceptionally well-crafted piece of work, soaked in soul, jazz, and beat orientated hip hop that also draws on the feel of early 70s psychedelic west coast rock. Particular highlights are ‘La La’ and ‘Suburban Dream,’ which carry you a long with their hooks and riffs, and the soulful ‘Cup Half Full.’ Buy this album. That’s all that needs to be said.” – Chris Renwick, Bonafide Mag.
“Those who arrived early got a special surprise with The Stepkids. Hailing from Connecticut and with an album on the way from L.A. label Stones Throw, The Stepkids are the band you absolutely must see as soon as possible.” – Liz Ohanesian, LA Weekly
The Stepkids are on their last week of a US tour with The Horrors, and will be playing several shows next month in New York City at CMJ.
