“Early Mastodon meet the Cardiacs doing Botch cover numbers is probably the nearest I can get to a quick description and even then I am falling short of the mark. This is head-fuck music of the highest order […] Like “On The Corner” by Miles Davis, at first it seems almost too complex and random to make sense but under the distorted instruments there is a fucked up groove happening.” – Black Insect Laughter

“Seth Rheam is no ordinary drummer: the guy’s been impressing our pants off for the better part of a decade with East of the Wall, and we can think of no musician more worthwhile of your attention. […] Like East of the Wall, EL DRUGSTORE’s music is complex, skronky, proggy and somehow still pleasing on the ears, but unlike the former it’s a touch more outwardly aggressive and noisy, and it’s entirely instrumental.” – MetalSucks

“…equal parts weirdo prog and bone-crushing heaviness.” – BrooklynVegan

EL DRUGSTORE “will immediately ensnare you with its jagged, yet groove-laden riffs, and dissonant, Gorgutsian lurches. […] The Golden Age Of Bad Ideas sees the band honing in on the heavier, more head-spinning aspects of their sound, and increasing them tenfold. Fans of Dysrhythmia, Don Caballero, and Keelhaul will want to pay close attention.” – Mathcore Index
