    [A] diverse new set. [May 2014, p.96]

    Sartain’s songwriting (and choice of covers) is superb throughout, and the album is immaculately sequenced. But that’s not really the main appeal of this record--the appeal is that it’s eclectic, and that it’s funny.

    [A] curiously eclectic record.

    The highlight is a creepy, prowling, marimba-driven take on The Knife's "Pass This On," which retains the female gaze of the original. [Jun 2014, p.82]

    It's diverting enough but unlikely to gain Sartain significant ground. [Jun 2014, p.119]

    In one sitting, Dudeblood might seem wilfully esoteric, with recording levels and musical styles as scattered as they’ll be in Sartain’s 45 box. But that’s always been his style, and it’s ultimately the greater part of his charm.

    The dexterity displayed on Dudesblood, if nothing else, forces fans and listeners to give Sartain’s music a little added pause for thought, and the record does its own small part to help keep today’s garage punk scene on its toes.

    funny, raw and very ilarious. Think if Ramones meet Suicide and play country, calipso and some kind of strange new wawe music. Not afunny, raw and very ilarious. Think if Ramones meet Suicide and play country, calipso and some kind of strange new wawe music. Not a masterpiece but a lot of fun. Full Review »
