"Boo And Boo Too have nailed down that manic brand of New York claustrophobia last achieved in the Walkmen’s debut—except they’re from Lawrence, Kansas." -

"[Boo and Boo Too] rock like they’ve spent the last five years trapped in a van on tour with Pavement, My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth. They squelch and squall guitar feedback like it was a fourth, unnamed member whose sole purpose was to remind everyone what indie rock used to be like, and on that count they deliver." -

"Like a perky bastard child of The Walkmen and Sonic Youth on Red Bull, the band batter their instruments into submission. Noise and feedback have rarely been played with such poppy purpose." -

"Boo and Boo Too is a thrift store for sound, for sure. Yeah, yeah: punk-pop squawk uneasily buttressed by f(r)actious guitar noise, chaos contained by a thin membrane of control and a tiny salute to no wave. But also that elusive, near-impossible to articulate quality -- charisma." -

"Unwitting anglophiles, this Kansas band take all the best bits of early Wire and Wedding Present, and wrap them up in a neat little bundle of more modern references like Liars and Broken Social Scene." -

"Easily the most exciting EP release I heard this year, Ian and I haven't stopped talking about Boo and Boo Too since we heard this. It's really addictive loud and noisy rock, in the vein of your favorite feedback filled Sonic Youth songs." -

"Sludgy, dreamy, new wave influenced wall of sound pop..." -

"Boo and Boo Too plays an impassioned, timeless sort of emo-punk. The Lawrence, KS, band's yearning vocals and wistful guitars make us nostalgic for those indie-rock mix-tapes we used to put together in high school." - Time Out New York
