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.
Will gets a nice, long interview for the blog Officially a Yuppie today. In it, he reveals various heretofore obscure nuggets, including what he wished his name was when he was a kid and how to not impress new fans.
Loving this C’mon Thunder review on In Your Speakers:
C’mon Thunder is Georgantas at his storytelling peak. He has a gravitas about him as a lyricist that is profoundly inviting . . . When looking for epic tales in the least likely places, Georgantas is the Indiana Jones of digging out rhetorical artifacts. Thankfully, these songs have not been locked away in wooden crates in an undisclosed warehouse.
This morning another song from C’mon Thunder, which drops in less than a week, premiered on a national website: “An Absolutely Ordinary Date,” featuring Darren Jessee from Hotel Lights on piano (and Alan Weatherhead on the pedal-steel heartstrings), can be heard on PopMatters, a great site that we’d love even if they didn’t say such nice things about us, such as:
Thunderegg powers his poppy musical adventures with killer lyrics, creating engrossing stories at each turn, forming a sort of pop literature if you will.
It’s all right here.
UPDATE: And here’s PopMatters’s full review of the C’mon Thunder album.
