Ralph's 10/18 Show Live Review by The Obelisk

As if it wasn't enough that we got to spend an entire weekend playing with class acts like Clamfight and Wizard Eye; the blogger extraordinaire and all around sweet-as-pie JJ of The Obelisk flatters us with kind words about our performance on Saturday and in the same breath challenges us to do a record with as much energy as our live show! Well sir I believe we are up to that challenge and we will find out in January. Check out that challenge and all the other cool things Mr HP Taskmaster had to say about the show at Ralphs Rock Diner this past Saturday:

"I wondered if it had been a month since the last time I saw Connecticut’s Bedroom Rehab Corporation while bassist/vocalist Adam Wujtewicz and drummer Meghan Killimade set up their gear. Yes, it had — just over a month, in fact. Still close enough that they were fresh on the brain, though. Their set had a couple new songs to go with “Basilosaurus” from their Red over Red debut long-player (review here). They’ll record in January, and I’ll look forward to what comes out of that for 2015, but the primary impression in watching them at Ralph’s, which is also where I first saw them over the summer, was much the same, in how completely their live show outclasses their studio material. They’ve got their work cut out for them in translating the energy they bring to the stage — the consuming, noisy sensibility in both of their approaches, the variety of tone and gruff vocals of Wujtewicz — but Justin Pizzoferrato, who also helmed the debut, should be able to capture it with the right balance of rawness and clarity. At Ralph’s, they were playing the second night of an NY/MA weekender with Clamfight and Wizard Eye, and it was clear the company they were keeping was pushing them to give it their all on stage". - JJ Koczan, The Obelisk - October 20, 2014
