“In a tradition of Van Morrison’s Them, Roky Erickson’s 13th Floor Elevators, or any cut off of Elektra Records’ 1972 Nuggets compilation, Hidden Charms’ gravelly vocals, fuzz bass, sparse angelic harmonies, and slick instrumentation possess garage rock chops certain to make their ancestors proud.” - Death and Taxes
