Artist: Fourth Of July Released: July 21. 2017 Album: On The Plains Catalog #: HDR024

“You’ll get along just fine with Brendan Hangauer. The frontman of Lawrence, Kan., septet Fourth of July, Hangauer knows what it’s like to be an under-30, hopelessly romantic Midwestern kid who likes to party and address last night’s regrets in fleet verses and big, grinning choruses lined with rock’n’roll guitars and handclap rhythms.” — Pitchfork

“The project of singer/songwriter Brendan Hangauer, this release has the feeling of a small-scale triumph—weaving some new, small statement out of the familiar instrumentation and tenor of indie pop.” — Popmatters

“On The Plains kicked off the sound the band would perfect: jangly, tight pop music with some heartbreakingly honest lyrics.” — I Heart Local Music
