    The Kickback contains the confidence of a veteran group, dancing on the high wire between sex-jam chasm and badass top-down-cruising canyon.

    Cali Swag District's surviving members memorialize M-Bone in the artwork of The Kickback, the group's debut full-length, which was originally set for release last year through Capitol before arriving in stores independently through a distribution deal with Sony RED. That dedication is a rare glimmer of gravity on a set filled with buzzy, lightweight odes to whips ("Burn Out [Drive Fast]"), women ("I'm Freaking You") and weed ("I Don't Need Your Money").

    The Kickback is a cool, slick, and easy party for the most part, with the occasional ballad slowing things down a bit too much.

    With Kickback, they prove they know how to throw a good party. Next time, the threesome will need to strive for better than par.

    While convincingly spry, Cali Swag District are unable to outlive the resonance of success that they attained with "Teach Me How To Dougie" as this one-sided affair of party tunes and fairly expendable production rarely impresses.

    They should stop making music. They got lucky with teach me how to dougie. They will probably never be successful again. Lyrics are barely decent, and these ppl are just trash Full Review »
