Ladyhawk are back. About damn time.
"Where previous Ladyhawk albums sprawled with extended guitar solos and more-than-the-sum-of-their-parts sloppy chemistry, their third full length, No Can Do, skews closer to lean power pop than to rambling classic rock. Driediger's voice is still cavernous, like he's singing from directly inside a painful moment instead of about one, but the rest of the band tightened around him. Drummer Ryan Peters offers a steady backbone to Sean Hawryluk's dense bass and Darcy Hancock, who previously was a master of down-and-out guitar solos, now chugs along at the forefront, giving Driediger's lyrics nimble freedom. No Can Do might be a thematically dark album, but it's Ladyhawk's lightest yet." - Pitchfork
"Although the bands are miles apart sonically and in subject matter, the best comparison I can make is to compare Ladyhawk’s growth on No Can Do to that of The National with the release of Boxer. Restraint. Professionalism. Crispness. These words that don’t normally lend themselves to rock ‘n roll (especially for a rough and ready rock outfit like Ladyhawk), but when executed correctly, they describe something magical." - Herohill
