THE UGLY BEATS: Praise For “Brand New Day”

See what critics are saying about Brand New Daythe brilliant new studio album from Austin, TX’s preeminent garage-pop band, The Ugly Beats - available exclusively from Get Hip Recordings:

“Packed with punchy, all-American pop-rock anthems”
Brett Callwood | Detroit Metro Times 

“Includes chiming/jangling guitars…plaintive, heart-on-sleeve vocals, conciseness, and yearningly pretty, insidiously catchy melodies” (4/5 Stars)
Mark Keresman, Esq. | ICON

“They perform a set of uptempo garagey pop-rock thumpers which, at times, bring to mind the Cynics when they were still new on the block.”
Lenny Helsing | Shindig! Magazine

“Expertly blends [The Ugly Beats'] love of ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll with more current power pop and punk elements. It’s 35 minutes without a bum note”
Austin American-Statesman

“The songs are good. No, make that VERY good. Seriously, this will appeal to fans of The Kinks, the Rain Parade…”
Dagger

Brand New Day is available on limited edition 180-gram orange vinyl180-gram black vinylCD, and Digital.
