“Those Darlins come off like the toughest, most dangerous group around. They deliver thrilling song after thrilling song that’ll have you hyping them to all your rock & roll friends as soon the album stops spinning.” - ALL MUSIC GUIDE
“Hooky, saucy, punky songwriting in a mood somewhere between Be Your Own Pet and the Donnas, only savvier. Those Darlins have mouths on them, yes they do. But their mouths are connected to their hearts and minds, and amped by loud guitars” - ROBERT CHRISTGAU A-, NPR’s ALL THING CONSIDERED
“My favorite band right now is Those Darlins, who have a really cool garage-country vibe. They're doing something totally out-of-the-box.” - Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast in Rolling Stone’s Best of Rock
“an instant garage/power-pop classic that would make everyone from Iggy Pop to King Tuff proud.” - PASTE: 8.5 out of 10
2012 is shaping up to be the biggest year for Those Darlins yet. Having just returned from their first European tour, the band is now recording a new album with acclaimed producer Scott Litt (REM, Nirvana, Patti Smith) before heading out for Summer fun fun fun on the road with Best Coast.
Expect new music this fall and enjoy their videos for their current singles "Be Your Bro" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiyXjv1aaf8) and "Screws Get Loose" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tzfzN0MyhU&feature=relmfu) to get a taste of what Those Darlins are all about.

“Instead of the clean electro-pop spewing from every city’s musical orifices, The Mad Caps hawk lo-fi grunge. They’re what Raphael Saadiq is to soul — but with a vengeance. It’s the kind of music you’d expect to open a show like “Sons of Anarchy” or a Hells Angels documentary. Think Louisiana bar-fight music, late-night cruiser tunes played on the original eight-track. Distorted guitar that instills a darkness the same way the Creature from the Black Lagoon might. “Rosie and the Wolfman,” the single from the Caps’ latest, self-titled album, is the embodiment of the campy horror that used to lurk on drive-in screens.” - Desert Companion
“With Rader panting, moaning and hyperventilating on the mic like Jerry Lee Lewis traversing some hot coals barefoot, while coming with some serious guitar bombast underscored by funk and finesse.” - Las Vegas Review Journal
“There are few places in Las Vegas I’d rather be than a Mad Caps show. On a stage, frontman Ted Rader is musical passion personified, shaking his hips, swinging his guitar and shouting through his megaphone while beat-pounding drummer Jon Realmuto propels all that energy in one direction—forward.” - Las Vegas Weekly
"The Mad Caps spew out churning retro blues rock with a post punk vibe.” - American Pancake
