Press LOVES Sewn Together!
"Thank you Jesus for the Kirkwood brothers. Sewn Together is one of the top five best albums I’ve heard so far this year and more importantly, it is yet another step in The Meat Puppets’ journey of greatness." - THE TRIPWIRE

"Sewn Together, which is a wonderfully satisfying work. Somehow, it all does get sewn together in a mix of styles that's both head-spinning and earthily rocking." - LA WEEKLY

"Sewn Together is reminiscent of the glory days of the Meat Puppets." - FILTER

" 3 1/2 Stars... The interplay of Curt's drowsy vocals and freaky guitar can still induce vertiginous spells -- witness the dreamy yet insistent "Blanket of Weeds" -- while the snappy "Love Mountain" reveals the clever pop craftsman behind his woozy persona." - SPIN

"Sewn Together's songs demonstrate that the once purveyors of grunge are still adept songwriters." - AOL SPINNER

"The number of ingredients found in a Meat Puppets record is impressive, but the way the band blends those pieces is what's truly astonishing. At its best, Arizona's Meat Puppets makes you think there are no boundaries between punk, country, and pop. The appropriately named "Sewn Together" finds Curt Kirkwood and his brother Cris Kirkwood crafting mongrel music as fine as anything in the band's catalog." - BOSTON GLOBE
