What the Press is saying:
“Second album Sit Resist mixes a whimsical drizzle of accordions and glockenspiels and brass and banjos and other indie accoutrements with a punchy blast of old fashioned guitar muscle. First taste “Master Of Art” uses the tried-and-true “Be My Baby” beat to slowly drive a reflective song into explosive Florence territory–a powerful blast of belting, bursting jangle-punk.” Village Voice

“Led by the powerful pipes of Ms. Stevenson, this collective use their punk pedigrees to add thrilling dynamics and power to expressive, deeply personal folk rock.” Alternative Press

“[Laura Stevenson & the Cans] is a tinge of Joanna Newsom minus the harp, Kate Nash if Kate Nash was cool and hell, let’s even throw some Jewel in there circa those years she lived in the truck.” RCRD LBL

“Laura Stevenson and The Cans prove it’s possible to fuse melody, thoughtful acoustic music and punk without compromising their sound. The resultant material is as phenomenal as it is undone. They’ve created a new genre for a new generation; an important development given the music industry’s tendency to rely on previous successes.” The Line Of Best Fit

“Once she truly lets rips with that lovely voice of hers, we’re left powerless to resist.” Wears The Trousers

“Let’s talk about how awesome Laura Stevenson is. First, there’s her voice. It’s a wonderful mix of confidence and precociousness—she can quietly sing soft lullabies, but she can also carry the climactic moments of more passionate anthems.” The Stranger

“Sit Resist is a big step up for Laura Stevenson and The Cans and a right step in the direction for indie music, reassuring those who are suckers for a beautiful voice and a catchy melody that we really have nothing to worry about, there’s still music out there for us.” AMP Magazine

“At SXSW in what is essentially a sea of indie rock bands, Laura and her band really stood out.” Stereophile

“Laura Stevenson has music in her blood.” Spinner.com naming the band to the top 100 acts of SXSW

“Laura Stevenson’s work is always a little bit strange, a little bit sad, and a lot stellar.” The Ruckus
