Paste Magazine describes Hood Internet as "The closest analogue to Chicago mashup DJs The Hood Internet is probably Girl Talk, a comparison that the duo—Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV)—find flattering, though they have a wildly different style from Greg Gillis' hyperkinetic remixes. The Hood men are musical alchemists of sorts, distilling a mixture of indie and hip-hop into dance-your-ass-off gold. Los Campesinos! guitar riffs overlayed with Young Jeezy’s rapping? They’ll make it happen, and they’ll make it awesome." -Michael Saba
"The New Loud isn't so much loud as it is frenetic and intense. (the band) has melodies and harmonies shooting from every part of the stage. It's a punkish, New Wave-y, dance-y sound reminiscent of Pavement, Rancid and Franz Ferdinand." -L. Bose for MKE Magazine
