"Some Pulp does not contain any Jarvis Cocker impersonators. They are a relatively new duo, consisting of Dane Hoppe and Graham Barton, and they play doo-wop and surf inflected garage rock. Out of necessity the affair is a relatively stripped sound, but Hoppe and Barton really know how to fill a tune out without a lot of added ballast. I was very impressed by their recent self-titled tape (also self-released) and the way the band manages to combine a sort of soul-baring romanticism with really intense guitar shredding all while avoiding making it, well, totally schlocky. I think it’s the band’s grittiness and intensity (and judging by this interview, not taking themselves too seriously) that really makes it work."

"If you think there are no more bands like before, you have to listen Some Pulp, one of the most cool things I’ve heard in recent times.
You will get the impression that Marc Bolan was resurrected and is singing again with T-Rex or, at least, will have the feeling that a new Bowie and the Spiders From Mars was born.
Their music is a kind of “better” proto punk with distorted guitars, pop appeal with a vocal so dragged , but totally passionate and addicted, as if the world was ending and they had to take his last farewell.
Some Pulp: as good as the classics and so deliciously new."

"Some Pulp's vintage garage rock sound is perfect for a cassette-only release. The Minneapolis duo's scuzzy guitar pop anthems on their self-titled EP will be a godsend for fans of Jay Reatard's twisted genius. And Graham Barton and Dane Hoppe make it all sound so easy."
