We got an early review from Nada Mucho for our upcoming album Never The Place and they really enjoyed it:
“…Never The Place is a damn good time. Each of the tracks are dance-oriented indie rock gems that push the party further and further until finally the 34 minute album finishes and you want to play it again.”
“…setting the album’s dancey foundation with a funky opening instrumental before highlighting the band’s excellent guy/girl vocals was a smart and tactical choice for The West.”
“…it’s refreshing that the songs on The West’s new album, Never The Place, don’t make you wanna throw punches so much as they make you wanna throw parties.”
The album will be available everywhere on Tues. Aug. 5th! We’ll see you at our album release show at The Crocodile on Sat. Aug. 9th.Read More
