Praise for "Plastic Cough":
"'90s slacker-rock chord progressions; growing into moments of grungy noise; unraveling into poppy, palm-muted riffs; building and faltering; exploding and nearing silence with surprising precision." -NPR
"Catchy, emotional rock... sound[s] like the best of Weezer. Only cooler." - The FADER
"Plastic Cough echoes with loose meandering, jangly/angular guitar and ragged vocal harmonies, but upholding it all is attention to craft and accessibility. You can hear it clearly in the album’s quieter moments, which are many. These are skilled musicians making music that’s blatantly fun but also surprisingly subtle." - City Arts Magazine
"[Teen Challenge is] a definitive example of everything that Great Grandpa does best: savvy, self-aware, and full of surprising musical moments that will keep listeners guessing throughout." - KEXP (SONG OF THE DAY)
" ...the Seattle quintet’s most compelling moment to-date, the head-rush of lyrics meeting those seismic guitars in a glorious splash of colour that breathes life in to whichever space it happens to be found and consumed. Wild, wordy, and utterly wonderful. - Gold Flake Paint
"[Fade is] is a three-minute slice of indie pop perfection. The undercurrents of garage rock give it a subtle infusion of snarl, as though they’re winking at the sonic mayhem they’re capable of unleashing if they want." - The Revue
