Kasimir CAVE! Sweet Reaper is highly addictive even in this newly applicable Microdose outfit. Starting with perfect onwarmer, followed by rousing roller, you're mandatory to flip and you get 2 more tunes to find a balance. Now it's done, you want more, you skate-punk-psycho!

SWEET REAPER are Seth, Sasha and Danny from Ventura, California and "Microdose" is their first 7" 45 rpm to date. We´re haunted, on a `Reaper hyperloop since early 2020 and there is no terrestrial exit to this. We´re ready to be shot to the the moon with the SWEET REAPER über-anthems hit machine! Join the ride of this tomb-skating surfpunk addiction! Four new & exclusive songs The microdose effectiveness is proofed in double-blind, placebo-controlled ALIEN SNATCH! rock and roll trials! On the one side of the planet they play "Coward" and the scorching "Liar", both are from the "Closer Still" album sessions. On the cold side of the moon they play "Drink The Poison" and "Like the way". It doesnt matter where you spend the dark night, power-pop-psychosis will get you! Killer artwork again by Seth.

razorcake.org (US) August 2021 Four tracks of the real California garage pop not unlike what those creepy teenagers were trying their hands at for a while with rather unfortunate results. Even with songs about cowards and liars, it’s still got me imagining a slo-mo Slip ’N Slide off the Ventura Pier, cannonballing into the Pacific as the sun sets on the horizon. The EP culminates in the sweetest, dreamiest love song from the guitarist to the drummer since Shellshag’s “5’ 1” and Change.” Awwwwwww Seth, ya cute, bearded bastard!

ox-fanzine.de (GER) #156 JUN 2021 Ein atemberaubendes Veröffentlichungstempo legen die drei Burschen aus Ventura da vor. Zwei LPs und eine 7“ in weniger als einem Jahr, so kriegt man eine Pandemie auch sinnvoll rum. Ermüdungserscheinungen? Null! Vier Songs im bewährten Stil, und, erstaunlich genug, keine Resterampe von übrig gebliebenem Material. „Drink the poison“ klingt so verdammt nach einer liebevollen Bubblegum-Version von „Forest Ray Colson“, dass ich schmelze. Vier Songs,für die das 7“-Format dereinst erfunden, erdacht und schließlich gemacht wurde. (8/10)(KS)

shutupandplaythemusic.blogspot.com (US) June 2021 microdose Alien Snatch Records x, the German label dedicated to the world's classiest power pop/garage punk bands for more than two decades (Hex Dispensers, Mojomatics, Primitive Hands, Lost Balloons, Bad Sports, Lame... to name just a few of them), is back with a favorite new highly-productive band, Sweet Reaper (two Lps released in 2020, Closer Still & Side Kick, and a brand new EP, Microdose, out two month ago!). The trio band is from Ventura, California. The melodic guitar has a marvelous "gling gling" aggressive sound, the bass lines brightly enfold the songs and the female drummer alternates mid-tempo rhythms (Cowards & Like The Way) and nervous beats (Liar & Drink The Poison). The immersion in those four songs looks like to me a pleasant return to the daily bread of my early-thirties, into the well-known home of the beloved Marked Men, Manikins, Kidnappers and other Hidden Charms. Nostalgic surges in sight ! And that damned time that still flies... The name of the band, as well as the artistic drawings of the Great Reaper on the front cover, remind me that the very best is mostly behind me now, and the feeling, that everything is vain, becomes each day more pervasive (om)

stillinrock.com (FR) May 2021 Voici l'histoire. C'était en 2018, je cherchais des dessinateurs pour illustrer les best of Still in Rock, je suis tombé sur pochettes de Sweet Reaper. Dessiné par Seth Pettersen, le chanteur du groupe, il m'a finalement fait l'honneur d'une création pour Still in Rock (publiée ici). Et puis, quelques semaines plus tard, il m'a proposé d'écouter sa musique. Ce fut le coup de foudre immédiat, "Sidekick" et "Spaceship" sont deux énormes singles. J'ai donc décidé de suivre Sweet Reaper à la trace, ce qui m'a conduit à Closer Still (2020), et, ces jours-ci, à Microdose. Le nouvel EP du groupe qui fait honneur à une discographie déjà très belle. Il applique sa formule habituelle : des mélodies post-2001, une production mid-fi, et des refrains qui feraient rougir les meilleurs artistes power pop de la planète.
