about

"Your Words, Bought and Sold" is marked by a mature, high-energy blast of quality songwriting, muscular and skronky guitar riffs, catchy vocal harmonies, and off-kilter rhythms. Lyrically, the songs display a thoughtful, self-aware take on personal quandaries, generational malaise, bad governance, and the novels of Italo Calvino.

"We had no idea improvising tuba jockey Chris Meeder played guitar and sang in a rock band; what's more, he and his fellow Sick Passengers are quite a good rock band, borrowing tricks from Hüsker Dü, Gang of Four and other great indie heroes without sounding slavish. The band's new EP Iron Horse [included on this Bandcamp album] is filled with terse guitars, rich vocal harmonies and quirky rhythmic turns; we were disappointed it was over so quickly, so we just played it again."
— Time Out New York

"Not since Regretfully Yours has there been a more assured power-pop debut than Your Words, Bought and Sold. The songwriting is clever and unpretentious. And the hooks are irresistible."
— Lost at Sea Magazine
