"’What You Gonna Do For Love?’ is a Zen-simple gem, with Meyers’ fast organ arpeggios providing the disc’s greatest moment of pure pop joy, while ‘Little Fox’ and ‘We’ve Got a Secret’ similarly lodge themselves in your memory banks for prolonged stays."
“Biggest surprise at SXSW 2008: The Krayolas at Jovita’s. I headed to South Austin to catch The Krayolas because they had Augie Meyers of the Sir Douglas Quintet playing with them. I expected a Tex-Mex band. What I got was the ‘Mexican Beatles’ of San Antonio back in the ’60s.”
“The Krayolas’ rock-n-roll conjunto sound and their catchy clean-cut lyrics is reason enough to see one of their shows.”
“The Krayolas are transcendent …”
“Their music has a joyous, unpretentious quality that makes every cut a treat. Basing their sound on the ’60s — there are traces of Paul Revere and the Raiders, the Box Tops, Monkees and, of course, the Beatles — the Krayolas stood apart from others with the same idea.”
“The sounds are retro perfect Beatlesque of the 1964 – 1966 variety and the production is clean and very similar to The Toms. If you thought that was buried treasure, gobble this one up.”
“Well-done, high-spirited retro-rock encompassing several styles, including Merseybeat (particularly on their debut single “All I Do Is Try”/”Sometime”), instrumental surf (“Alamo Dragway”), power pop, roadhouse blue-eyed soul (“Roadrunner”), Tex-Mex-influenced new wave (“The Sphinx Won’t Tell” sounds like a mixture of Elvis Costello and border music), and even ”70s Van Morrison-styled horn rock.”
