Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) The sound of "Slingshot Dakota" is really unique. One might be tempted to assume that just keyboards and drums are not enough to produce a hefty sound... but this band housed on the splendid "Topshelf Records" label prove this assumption wrong. Carly Comando's keyboards - frequently e-piano sounds with a heavy overdrive - enter an ideal symbiosis with Tom Patterson's groovy drums, and are led to perfection by the vocals contributed by Carly Comando as well. Favorite track: Never Hear.

Rosie kerr "There is a tiny voice, and it says "i love you" on an old cassette tape you know it"

A couple of my absolute favourite people that I met and put on in 2012. I hold them as people and their music very dear to my heart. Favorite track: Cassette.
