Review by Joseph Timmons: Xombiewoof Magazine
A Swelling Burst of energetic rock in the sound of the 60’s / 70’ Glam Rock / Love Anthem Style, Smash Fashion is not a throwback but a fast forward to the rebirth if high life and power chord rebellion. Big Cat Love is a serenade to the new generation and gives reverence to “long live rock & roll” idealism in a manner that T-Rex and Gary Glitter would salute.

ALLISON WEISS DEBUT’S NEW SONG, “TAKE YOU BACK,” AT PASTEMAGAZINE.COM
Indie-rock singer-songwriter Allison Weiss has debuted a new song called “Take You Back” today with PasteMagazine.com. The track is featured on her upcoming, highly anticipated EP, Remember When, which is due out on July 22nd from No Sleep Records. The record is available for pre-order now on limited edition 12” vinyl at https://nosleeprecords.com/product/7228. Stream “Take You Back” now, exclusively at PasteMagazine.com: http://bit.ly/TRCGW2
“This is one of my favorites off Remember When,” says Weiss. “I've been dying to strip a song down and do it low-fi, and figured this would be the perfect moment to do it. The song is about the kind of toxic relationship that you keep going back to, even when you know it's a bad idea. The ending is the best part.” “Take You Back” is one of five astounding new tracks that blur the line between pop, rock and folk on her upcoming EP Remember When, which also includes her infectious single “Giving Up,” “Remember When,” “The Fall” and a cover of Robyn’s hit song “Call Your Girlfriend.”
Weiss will be performing an album release show at El
Cid in Los Angeles on July 18th before joining the Vans Warped Tour on July
20th in Shakopee, MN. -
