One Hand Free have come careening out of the back woods of New Hampshire with a sneer that signals they know exactly what they are doing, and a twinkle in their eye that says they intend to do it to you. Lead vocalist Andrew Blowen anoints all in a voice of honey coated buckshot, while the boys revel in smearing a smoky progressive tang on their southern-soul tinged brand of Rock.
No punches pulled. No prisoners taken.
No apologies to offer. No irony to bear.

Have You Tasted Our Sweetbreads?
"The tunes are heavy, loud and filthy. Not filthy bad — filthy good. The sort of inspiring guttural call and response rock that gets fists in the air, and cup-checks in queue. One Hand Free hit hard. And to say they're at the top of their game is a question that remains tastefully unanswerable. They're a machine that keeps on chugging along, churning out riff after riff, continually offering up tunes that only seem to burn brighter with each ensuing listen."
- Christopher Hislop, Spotlight Magazine/Portsmouth Herald
"Though only a five track EP, “Sweetbreads” comes in at a healthy 31 minutes, as the band stretch out and properly explore their songs. Opener “Sly” rolls out its goodness over five minutes and could be the beefy cousin of one of Terry Reid’s masterpieces from the “River” album. It’s followed by “Dead Reckoning” which is gentler but no less charismatic – what a great start, and it gets better. “Like A Stone” is built around a chubby riff, hewn from classic ‘70s rock, before the record’s centerpiece hits home. “Mangrove” is the longest cut here, recorded live, it’s a slow burn blues-rocker with Josh DiJoseph’s guitar sparring with Blowen’s vocal and keys to notable effect. The fifth and final track “Slipstream” might just be the pick of the bunch. Again, it was recorded live and the band is on fire. Mostly instrumental, the interplay between the lead instruments and the structured intensity of the three-piece rhythm section is just wonderful. I’d love to see them do it on a big stage."

"This Portsmouth-based power quartet pays homage to its classic rock forbearers with its own original brand of hard rock. They play music for the glorious joy of it, and that enjoyment radiates from their latest five-song EP, brimming with blues, southern, psychedelic and progressive rock."
