about

"From the Opening Drum Roll I Knew it Was Going to be Great."
Me Dig."
~ Charles Thompson (The Pixies)

"Gaffney has spent the years since making tons of interesting music away from the Sebadoh spotlight. Much of it can be heard and bought via three Bandcamp sites that Gaffney runs, all of which teem with sounds made in many different locales and time periods. It can be tough to sort out exactly what’s from where and when, but it doesn’t really matter—just dive in anywhere and you’ll find something worth listening to." "Gaffney has made fascinating music for decades, and it deserves to be heard by as many ears as possible."
~ Marc Masters, Pitchfork

"Even before Gaffney was a bedrock member of cult US indie rock group Sebadoh, he was a burgeoning bedroom, 4-track artist, crafting oddball tracks blending rock, folk and weirdo experimental. The type of songwriter that fed off the freedom to feel inspired, write and record and move on. Since his departure from Sebadoh in 1993, Gaffney has picked up right where he left off, creating a one of a kind treasure trove of wry low fidelity, rock and roll which he peddles off his Bandcamp site." "His newest release, Land Of Make Believe is a record that exists outside of time. This is the kind of gem-laden collection that reminds you why you loved lo-fi rock in the first place. The raw riffs of 'What An Attitude' feel like they could have been cranked out of one of the many beer filled troughs at Satyricon, his sneering critique of his dead-eyed neighbors on 'America’s Drug' is raw and blissfully wise ass in a post punk tradition. Gaffney lays everything bare on 'Lake Of Make Believe' (as he does on every recording) from his well heeled sense of humor 'Howlin’ Krishna' to his keen ability to pay homage to '60’s garage on 'No Telling Why' to a dose of downtrodden blues on 'Bouquet For A Siren'. This is the kind of variety which makes him such a rare and precious gem."
~ Erick Mertz, Bearded
