Paul Duffus: Simplistic, repetitive muzak with slightly flat vocals. Is there more to it than this? If life is too much fun, if you own too many great records and your goal for 2016 is to ratchet down your IQ and overall enjoyment of the world, then “Be Together” is just the anodyne pap to help you on your demented way.

PURSES is comprised of Drew Beskin (District Attorneys, Party Dolls), Phillip Brantley (Modern Skirts), Mckendrick Bearden (Grand Vapids), Hunter Morris (Blue Blood, Gift Horse), Jeremy Wheatley (Crooked Fingers, Ruby the Rabbitfoot) and Frank Keith IV (Tedo Stone, The District Attorneys, Party Dolls, Ruby the Rabbitfoot).  If you’ve been lucky enough to hear some of the new sounds emerging from the state of Georgia these days, from those bands in particular, you know that PURSES represents something of an Athens-area supergroup.

Dustin Ragucos: While “Broken Flowers” lacks the catchiness of a Hannah Diamond take like “Hi”, Danny L Harle creates a track that might shift the minds of those that hate PC Music. With each repeated phrase is an artificial, yet much-needed speed that is the equivalent of hitting fast-forward. PC Music becomes the additive to a day that feels like it lacks sugar. “Broken Flowers” might not make you dance, yet it functions as a head-bobber, one with vocals that sound too Carly Rae Jepsen-y to not be bubblegum pop-influenced. Bravo. [6/10]

Ryan Dieringer: I just can’t get down with him throwing the B-word left and right. Some of them don’t even seem to deserve it at all. But I love me some Miguel, who sounds as heartfelt here as he usually does. Just wish he’d be more selective with his collaborations. [5/10]

Jedd Beaudoin: Not horrible. Doesn’t do much for me, though. Wait. Did he write a jingle and then turn it into a full blown song? Dual purpose song. Points for that. [6/10]
