ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For the animal in all of us, comes 'Two Legs Bad,' the new album from the Minnesota Folk-Rock band Skittish.
Conceptualized from George Orwell's Animal Farm, and flowing in the same vein as eclectic indie rockers like Arcade Fire and Feist, this will be the first of two albums dedicated to this vision.
it is peppered with literary references, cradled in catchy melodies, and spiked with equal parts cynicism and hope. It is folk rock...with thorns.


PRESS:
“It‘s got it all – great playing, solid writing, & infectious grooves.
It’s definitely a musical production that gives us a fresh glimpse of an amazing artist from Minnesota. [Rating: 5/5]”
----Drew Blackwell, Skope Magazine

“The results are brilliant, effective and defy simple codification. Grieving has never been so amazingly fun.
I gleefully give Skittish’s The Five Stages 10/10 stars!”
---- Mindy McCall, Music News Nashville

“Skittish claim their band plays "folk rock with thorns," but I think they're underselling themselves.
They've just put out a terrific CD with plenty of great hooks and twists along the way.”
---- Ross Riahala, St Paul Pioneer Press

“ Amazing. 10/10!”
----- Indie Music Digest

“It is quite possible that Skittish has put out the best album for the summer that I have ever heard...if you are looking for that
perfect album to roll down the windows and crank up, then look no further it’s right here.”
---- All Ages Zine, Chicago

"...self-therapeutic for the artist, as well as being a treat for all listeners. Both intimate and infectious, The Five Stages is highly recommended.”
---- Mike Mineo, Obscure Sound

“Intense stuff. Have a go at this fabulously eclectic, unique and personal collection.”
---- Lee Levin, Knox Road

“(It) supplants itself so far into your brain that it’s instantly familiar and compels itself to be played again and again. Nice.”
---- Greg Swan, Perfect Porridge

"Skittish has released a distinctive and vibrant album that offers a refreshingly innovative reading of the much-popularized
indie folk-rock genre...Tragedy of the Commons is an excellent example of how a compelling artist like Noller can explore a wide range of
musical interests and make them work together. "
---- Jason Morelyle, MusicCritic.ca “Great songwriting and catchy melodies. 9/10”

“Ultimately it probably lands somewhere in the vicinity of art rock or modern progressive rock,
but there are plenty of other things going on, too. This is really extremely strong. 9.5/10”
-----Steve Rafferty, Gashouse Radio

“Skittish is a band that has been skimming along under the radar, but that should change as soon as more of the people with great taste,
who frequent mp3 blogs, hear the music. It's by turns, folksy and then indie flavoured, but more than these it's very, very good”
---- SixEyes BlogSpot

"Disc one of “The Perfect Shade of Green” is all soaring vocals and interweaving harmonies. The voices mesh well over the instrumentation.
Strong major key melodies in songs like “Living Atop” and “Singing the Obits” keep the album grounded and pleasing without being
boring. It’s an entertaining indie-folk-rock romp."
- Conrad Shoenleber, The Minnesota Daily

“This Jeff Noller guy has got some serious musical chops, no doubt about it. His vision was his own, and he made it a reality.
I can't speak negatively on behalf the music itself, because there are many positive qualities; clever, well executed, shows a great amount of talent. 9/10"
- Owen Matheson, Indie Artist Alliance
