    Nothing to Do is admittedly pretty one note in sound and subject matter, but the boys deliver it with so much enthusiasm and so many hooks, it's hard to care.

    If you worship Wavves, or the epic SoCal proto-hardcore of the first Redd Kross and Adolescents record, kneel and marvel. [May 2012, p.67]

    It's raggedy and satisfying, unconcerned with anything beyond its very elemental attitudes and poses.

    'Nothing To Do' is a real struggle to hate. The fact is, they have an undeniable knack for turning out two-minute garage pop songs with such warm-hearted, wide-eyed brio that shooting them down seems as callous as steamrollering a basket full of kittens.

    The album swings back and forth between modes for half an hour, with decent hooks and sprightly rock-outs along the way (notably Who Are You, the title track), but even in the eternally throwaway field of garage-pop, these thrills are fleeting indeed.

    It's not a bad first album; it's just not a great one, either.

    Fans of No Age and Best Coast will recognize the formula here - but what the band lack in originality they compensate for in energetic spark. [May 2012, p.93]

    It gets old quick, but this goofy dance punk record is fun for the first few spins. [Jun 2012, p.158]
