released 27 July 2013
"Huge Rat Attacks have been carving out a spot where heavy meets hazy for some time now, and Organic Babies, The Rat Attack’s third album, and first offering since the group reformed after a very long hiatus, is full of delicious, Sabbathy, heavy sunshine. A growly, smoke filled record, Organic Babies reaches into several dimensions, while somehow managing to keep a consistent vibe throughout. These guys know how to create and construct gritty, bass-y jams with roaring, stoner guitar, and drums that are at one moment patient and building, and totally schizo the next. Singer, Jason Oehrlein’s vocals are chill and somehow simultaneously full and personal. “Dimensional Loops,” is an anthemic rager, while “Wheel,” slows things down to a lovely melodic daze. The best part about this record is how much it flows. One of those rare records with a specific tide that shouldn’t be interrupted, it’s a better listen as a whole, a beautiful summer offering." -- Erica Krumm
"I wasn't sure what to make out of this so I just pressed "play" on the very first song, "Dimensional Loops". After one minute and twenty seconds I was already impressed. And how could I not be when what I'm hearing is highly overwhelming psychedelic soundscapes presented in a very technical manner. It's a love from first listen."
-- Christian Antonoff, Against the Odds
"If you haven't ever listened to Huge Rat Attacks, there isn't any better time than now!" -- Heavy Planet
