"There are traces of Galaxie 500 in the guppies' lo-fi performance, echoes of the Pixies in their sometimes inscrutable lyrical content, and elements of the Velvet Underground's willful highbrow in their reserved cool and in the visual impact of their live show. . . . The guppies' music approaches the level of Pure Art - an aesthetic creation that exists for no reason other than its own right to be - and their freedom is absolute." - Eric Waggoner, Phoenix New Times
"When I play this band to people, it always leaves them with a surprised face and a smile. . . . an original mixture of Blackheart, Three Mile Pilot, Low, country stuff and some Sonic Youth. A band that you sit down to listen to, that is giving you back what the day has stolen from you." - Carmen Diablo Records (Spain)
"...AND GUPPIES EAT THEIR YOUNG. a weird mixture of depressive folky-punk and dirty garage-blues. imagine THE BAD SEEDS mixed with CALEXICO playing STOOGES songs completely drunk in a desperate bar in the middle of the desert." - Westberlin (Germany)
"Criminally infectious...a sunburned Sonic Youth vibe ...noise-laden ambience...excellent stuff" - Sponic Zine
"A very intriguing, strange and interesting band from Arizona who create dark, noisy and twisted music. Often experimental, sometimes beautiful, other times downright frightening. Ranging from slow-core beauty like Bedhead et al, and then jetting off into an assaultive barrage of noise, they certainly keep it interesting!" - Clairecords
