Here’s a thoughtful, extensive review of C’mon Thunder on Eike Klien’s Das Klienicum website: we just don’t know what it says. Which is kind of killing us, because Eike is a smart guy with great taste in music. I mean, there’s always Google Translate, but
the lad’s ancestors with Greek around a lot, always has the waking eyes open, is very communicative and does not hold hintem mountain. so open to him the crowded and filled rapidly hearts and his treasury. with “c’mon thunder” presents Georgantas a new album, a circumstance that is given the qualitative constancy hard to believe, attached to a discography that is unparalleled published these days in self-production
doesn’t quite cut muster. If anyone wants to contribute a translation, in part, in full, or in blurb, you know where to find us.
As part of David McCreath’s It Might Get Personal video podcast, in which Bay Area artists cover their favorite songs, Will plays Paul Westerberg’s worst-wedding-song-ever “Nobody,” from the Replacements’ final, underrated album All Shook Down.

Here’s a cool review of C’mon Thunder by Joe Wawrzyniak in Jersey Beat, which Will was all the more excited to see since he’s from Jersey.
Today C’mon Thunder was named Indie Album of the Week by The Brag, the biggest street press in Sydney:
His trademark is a paradoxical pairing of just-woke-up effortlessness and pedantic attention to detail—Georgantas comes across as a chronic contemplator, but thankfully, transferring contemplation into amusingly enlightening lyrics and accessible vocal melodies comes easy.
A straight A for C’mon Thunder from Buffalo’s finest music blog.
C’mon Thunder awakens something that has been dead, or at least hibernating, inside of you. It reminds you of a time when music was just music, nothing more. Georgantas and company manage to awaken this entity while channeling REM, Elliot Smith, and Guided by Voices, while retaining their independence, originality and distinction from the crowd of wannabes.
C’mon Thunder officially dropped at 9:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, May 13. You can find it at all the usual digital outlets, but here it is on Bandcamp, our personal favorite.
