    "Schwervon's Low Blow album kicks serious backside with a barrage of heavy Pixies-esque riffery, pop melodies and perfectly attuned male/female harmonies."
    -Milo, GASEOUS BRAIN

    "The album needn’t be compared;it succeeds on its own terms. Robert Schumann wrote, “Music is an orphan whose mother and father no one can determine. And it may well be that precisely in this mystery lies the source of its beauty.” That’s the sweet spot of Low Blow." -Tony Rubin, Boog City

    "...the urgency of Low Blow’s sound struck me immediately. A bunch of the songs here, “Balloon” or “Wake and Bomb” being a good examples, remind me of the hyperactive, edgy guitar rock of bands like late-period Sleater-Kinney and Deerhoof.".. -Pop Headwound

"Schwervon! tunes remind us a great deal of many of the odd, obscure underground pop bands that were treading around the United States in the early- to mid-1990s. This might better be labeled as minimalist pop because there is very little of the ultra-layering that usually litters twenty-first century pop. Plenty of groovy cuts here including "Dodger," "What We Talk About When We Don't Talk About Love," "Glasses On," and "Dogs for Hire. 5 out of 5" LMNOP.com

Track Name: Pretty Slow
Water is cold.
My arm is fine.
My gums recede.
They bleed like meat.

Remove your head.
Get in my bed.
Red, white, and blue
ribs on the rack.

Best thoughts come when I first awake.
Before I've got money to make.

It's time to go.
You're pretty slow.
Your legs are long.
The sky is high.

A drink to drive
the kids away.
It's hard to hear
up on this stage.

I intend to feel good today.
Sallow moon stay out of my way.
