"Frankie and the Witch Fingers are a swift kick in the ass for garage psych. Their hooks are sharper, the production isn’t vintage for the sake of vintage, and the recorded material captures the energy of the band’s eccentric live performances perfectly. That’s exactly what they do once again on their new album, Heavy Roller..."
- Consequence of Sound
"Heavy Roller is the descendent of “Helter Skelter,” “Sweet Jane,” “The 99th Floor” (and a bunch of other echodelic Texan rockers) and even some Syd Barrett-via-Robyn Hitchcock psychedelia, especially as you get deeper into the album. Put them on opening slots for Night Beats, White Fence or the Growlers and they’d be on the road for a year."
" The key thing to know about these retro psych rockers is that their hooks are snappy, their guitars and organ rebound up and down like championship ballers and you can hear many influences, past and present, with everything in their style that includes Beatles, 13th Floor Elevators, Flamin’ Groovies and Thee Oh Sees. From the big soaring “Fuzz God” to the hypnotic closing keeper “Merry Go Round,” Frankie and the Witch Fingers consistently keep things moving, interesting and memorable. If old school or new school psych rock is your thing, Heavy Roller should be added to your list to pick up!"
