III is a rock masterpiece. Acid, grunge and pysch; this collection of songs echoes The Velvet Underground in extended jams like "Sun Tsunami" and "Save Your Savior," Chicago outfit Disappears in advance droned-out singles "Hate Smile" and "Fire" and even pop-esque structures that invokes Black Mountain and Film School in a track like "Lie Awake."
-Jon Schober, 89.3 The Current
Do you ever see a lady sitting in her car on a hot summer day, smoking a cig with the windows rolled down and wonder, “How can people enjoy taking hot smoke into their body when it’s hot as holy hell outside?” But at the moment of dismissing the lady in question as common trash, her boyfriend comes out of the bodega she’s parked in front of with a dripping six-pack of beer, and when her eyes meet his, she smiles and flicks the cig onto the concrete. You stare at the ring of brick red lipstick around the butt as they pull away thinking, “I should be doing more with my life."
