In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Tilts' debut EP, Cassingle. He had this to say:
Fronted by ex-Riddle of Steel frontman Andrew Elstner and bolstered by a few ex-members of Shame Club, the band plays ballsy riff-rock that sounded as good now as when T. Rex did it. But instead of melting your face with high-necked guitar fireworks (a hallmark of the band's past groups), Tilts would rather rock your ass with a thrusting groove. That's not to say that the six strings have been locked away. Guitarists Elstner and Andy White square off for Thin Lizzy-like harmonics on the chugalug workout "Give Me Some of Your Loving," a song that gives the best impression of the band's style.
