Press for The District Attorneys -
Songwriters Drew Beskin and T.J. Mimbs bring different perspectives to their band’s unified sound, which helps to make things sound even fresher. This is a confident record, and deservedly so. The District Attorneys have put together something pretty special here. -- Pop Matters
The support and energy surrounding this group is reminiscent of early Drive-By Truckers fanfare—a good sign for their future. In fact, after a debut full length like Slowburner, it would be hard to fade into the background. -- Flagpole
Slowburner is a damn catchy record, probably the catchiest I have heard all year, but its definitely not a one listen then forget about kinda record, its a listen and “oh shit I didn't catch that the first, second, third time around” kind of record. best of 2012? You betcha! -- Captains Dead
Slowburner has got all the requisite flourishes that you expect from MMJ . Lead singer Drew Beskin really channels his inner Yim Yames on this and delivers. The District Attorneys’ previous EP’s showed promise, but I didn’t anticipate them putting out an album of this quality. -- Hear Ya
Slowburner is a damn fine album, and--as a debut--a remarkably mature and consistent album. -- When You Motor Away
