This Frontier Needs Heroes (Brooklyn, NY)

MySpace page

"their music ranges from simply arranged, heartbreaking ballads to raucous foot-tappers, complete with rambling electric guitar solos and handclaps... both call to mind vast and often desolate american landscapes. their back porch sound is peppered with scratching violins, bass, and flute and ocarina flourishes, which add to the band's whole western vibe. with its lonely acoustic guitar, brad's desperate warble, and jessica's open, airy harmonies, the album opener, "firefly," provides a great introduction to the band's sound." npr all songs considered

"with harmonies so tight they sound like they come from a single larynx, the act crafts a shuffling, aching americana that taps deep into the whole back-porch vibe that folk music ought to exude--but not without a tinge of the band and will oldham to help modernize it."

"arresting local neofolk duo this frontier needs heroes combines spare, literate songs in a neil young vein with hints of homegrown psychedelia." time out new york

"agreeably downbeat and mournful, indie-country-folk-grazed tunes." time out london

"...we figured that we want to focus on getting our favourite bands first, no matter if they're headliners or tiny bands... even bands travelling all the way from america, such as this frontier needs heroes, motel motel, whispertown 2000 and of course the low anthem!" end of the road festival

"crooning wash away the hangover." end of the road festival
