"Bill Taft and Will Fratesi are luminaries of Atlanta's indie rock avant-garde -- Taft's legacy as a key player in Smoke and Fratesi's tenure as the rickety percussionist behind such lonely and urbane Southern specters as Cat Power and Tenement Halls culminates in Hubcap City with slow, serpentine miasma. Superlocalhellfreakride is a guided tour through Atlanta's underbelly; a survey of the acoustics found in its burned-out buildings, graveyards and long-abandoned mills. The humid ghosts of Hubcap City's ancestors, including Smoke, the Jody Grind and Atlanta's seminal Destroy All Music Festivals in the 1980s all echo in these folkish dirges of melody and noise. With each lazy and uplifting honk of the horn over a clatter of strings and metal the group pushes the old weird Atlanta into deeper and higher levels of beautiful imprisonment, and the only way out is through."
