VISQUEEN’S “HAND ME DOWN” IS NPR’S SONG OF THE DAY

NPR

Rachel Flotard’s charismatic stage presence and fiery vocals have helped her pick up supporting roles with Neko Case and Jon Rauhouse, but she dominates the spotlight on Message to Garcia. Barbara Mitchell of NPR writes, “The crunchy, urgent power-pop of “Hand Me Down” opens the album on a particularly auspicious note, as crunchy guitars and Flotard’s incomparable voice simultaneously destroy and mesmerize.” As its title suggests, “Hand Me Down” is rooted in a singular bond that spans generations. As long as it keeps getting passed on in rock songs this fun and familiar, that bond will never fade.
