From the flaming wreckage of the 'Record Industry' arise The Grimm Generation.... The GG design is simple: one guitar and two singers. The hook comes in the 'confessions', the loud and public sharing of their perception of modern 'love', told over tunes based on blues+country+glam+show music (= Rock And Roll) featuring emotionally wrung out vocals leaving no doubt that these are real moments, captured, reshaped, and harmonized with.
'It s a rarity that a heretofore unknown band from the southern region of Connecticut can make an indelible impression with their debut album. But the Windsor, CT-based band, The Grimm Generation s The Last Record Party is truly a songwriting fête that explores the not-so-shocking underbelly of suburban sexual ennui and apocalyptical romances. As with their previous three EP s, these latest songs are a rollicking collection of odes to illicit pleasures and bad relationships, as well as a smattering of sexual tension and seduction that borders on exploitation.' - Examiner --Examiner.Com
'There s a guy, Jason P. Krug, and a gal, Carmen Champagne. They both sing, and their voices play off each other in interesting ways that are both cool and cute at the same time. Champagne will sing lead while Krug sings a counter-melody, or one will sing an octave over the other, or Krug will lay out altogether and let Champagne sing solo. It s too raw and blues-oriented to be overly cutesy, though; it s more Velvet Underground than Mates of State. Lyrics are worth paying attention to, as in the closer End of the World when Champagne sings, Remember the day your brother was killed, we were up in your bedroom with a shoebox full, your mom sat downstairs reading magazines and her TV Guide. That got my attention instantly.' - The New Haven Advocate --The New Haven Advocate
'With a gentle repeating guitar lick and ghostly piano,Hovering is a lovely showcase for Champagne's throaty voice, which she drops to a breathy murmur. The tune is thoughtful and precise without crossing the line into fussy.' _ Hartford Courant --The Hartford Courant
