NEW REV ALBUM AT ITUNES "The Restless Are Natives"
Buffalo News Review: Jeff Miers
"The album blends anger and empathy, balancing gritty, post-punk guitar figures against more reflective, esoteric melodic and harmonic movements. “Restless” is also an abundantly rich recording, with plenty of ear candy for the audiophile and headphone-obsessive alike."
MORE REVIEWS of REV's "The Restless ..."
"The Restless Are Natives offers several avenues to rock and shoe-gaze by. It's appeal only grows with each listen as even the slightest rocker evolves to a depth of evolving imagery."
REV - Performed on Exposed Music Festival WIN TOUR 2013.
