"Dragondeer delve into some swampy blues and reverb-drenched psych folk. You don't want to miss Dragondeer's cosmic blues"
"Nestled somewhere between the quicksilver psychedelia of the '60s and bone-thumpin' blues from Mississippi's yesteryear, these Colorado cats have crafted a sound that is equal parts cosmic and grooving"

"This record has a great old-school feel!" - David Gans
(Musician and 30 year host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour and co-host of Sirius-XM's Grateful Dead Channel "Tales from the Golden Road")
"Modern-edged bluesmen a la Jack White and Black Keys, this Denver-based quartet aren't interested in retreading the past; they put their own psych-folk stamp on it. "Don't That Feel Good" is a folk-blues outing with cool percussion choices that sound like spoons, shells, and tin cans. A cover of "Messin' With the Kid" spreads some psych-rock wah-pedal sauce, gobs of lead-vocal reverb and a dizzying guitar solo for a song that'd suit a Guy Ritchie trailer. "Castaway," with its husky vocal, convincingly channels a midnight hobo-camp intimacy. An excellent addition to any festival right now, it'll be interesting to see how Dragondeer builds upon its alternative "shot 'n beer (with a hit o' acid)" vision."

"“Don’t That Feel Good” intoxicates with reverbs that transport the listener to a funky, psychedelic bayou wonderland. The five songs overflow with a remarkable storyteller’s ability to draw a listener in, completely enraptured by the momentum of an energetic blues style."
