What the press is saying:

“Idaho’s Finn Riggins, on the other hand, was anything but boring. A variety of chord progressions, noises, instruments, styles and math-y beats comprised the trio’s eccentric sound, all performed pretty deftly Thursday night.” Las Vegas City Life

“Finn Riggins approached their latest album, Vs. Wilderness, with consideration for how each song would translate in a live setting. The result is a raucous and unpredictable collection of material that achieves an invigorating immediacy … and fairly mirrors their raucous and unpredictable live show.” Seven Days

“You can go see them live and just dance-off, or you can listen in to a fine set of observations of the American experience. What you can’t do is ignore it: This is infectious, relentless and the only performance/album I’m reviewing in several years that’s a 7 out of 7.” Oregon Public Broadcasting

“Wake (Keep This Town Alive),” off last year’s Vs. the Wilderness, a tune that fuses their love of Idaho-style indie rock (they recently supported Built to Spill at the Showbox) and long-hair rockers from the ’70s.” Seattle Weekly

“Finn Riggins, with their joyfully eccentric indie-pop workouts that juxtapose XTC, Blondie and the Poster Children, might not yet attract the kind of scenester crowd that flocks to the latest Sonic Youth- or Slowdive-inspired outfit, but the band’s calculated harmonies and impressive poly-rhythms are irreverent and beautiful, as are the group’s quirky lyrics.” Boulder Weekly
