In The Press

  • Brontë Martin, Earmilk

    “With a playful sophistication, Hot Flash Heat Wave remind us of The Drums‘ strong pop mentality and Smith Westerns‘ slacker attitude.”

    - Brontë Martin, Earmilk
  • Robin Murray, Clash

    “The band’s songwriting – lucid synth pop, fragrant electronics – is pieced together with lyrics that speak of real life experience.”

    - Robin Murray, Clash
  • Alex McCown-Levy, A.V. Club

    “[Be Calm Honcho] delivers in a big way. It’s the kind of song [Bad Man] that’s meant for staring out the window, pondering the big things, and hoping everything will be okay tomorrow.”

    - Alex McCown-Levy, A.V. Club
  • Max Savage Levenson, Bandcamp

    “In a time when everyone and their grandma seems to be bemoaning the dissolution of the Bay Area’s music community, OIM Records has assembled an unpretentious collection of caffeine-rush rock that provides a refreshing alternative to the malaise.”

    - Max Savage Levenson, Bandcamp
  • Brooklyn Vegan

    “The band’s [The Tambo Rays] new single, “Get It Right Now,” is a great example of what they do: propulsive, bouncy indie pop that gleams like a toothpaste commercial smile.”

    - Brooklyn Vegan
  • Consequence of Sound

    “The band’s music, much like their name [Hot Flash Heat Wave], hits like a sweltering and sudden heat wave — the kind that doesn’t deter you, just makes you want to pour water on your head and keep on going.”
