"There's some kind of crazy connection between Michigan and Florida, enough so that the proposed bullet-train / flume ride linking the two states starts to make a hell of a lot of sense, especially when you consider the twenty-some-odd trips to Gainesville NORTH LINCOLN has made from Grand Rapids over the last five years. Between recording two albums and a demo here playing five Fests, and touring in general, maybe they should invest in a time-share or foster a band-exchange program?

The eleven songs on "Midwestern Blood" are the culmination of a two-year recording and mixing process. Rob McGregor once again captured the noise at Goldentone Studio, with Derron Nuhfer mixing the beast at Crescendo Sound The trade off captured the best of both worlds. The band took their straight forward, gruff mix of anthemic punk and raspy rock and extended the formula to include instrumental stretches and more space to breathe. Maybe it was too many hours spent listening to Drive Like Jehu? Maybe it was something in the water... or the snow? Whatever it was, we can all hope that they drink deep and forge ahead, striking the delicate balance between record-nerd and music-geek. (Insert college football reference here.)" - Var / No Idea

A few years ago, somebody coined the term "Midwestern beer- belly despair rock" to describe a handful of bands emanating from the greater Illinois/Michigan era, and the moniker couldn't be more aptly fitting for North Lincoln. Hailing from the reeling metropolis of Grand Rapids, deeply rooted in a community that rode the post-industrial wave of collapse and still struggles to keep its head above water, North Lincoln embodies a newer wave of working-class punk rock that ditches the anthemic trappings of Boston and New York and instead builds on the melancholy hymns of luminaries like JAWBREAKER and LEATHERFACE. They've added a healthy dash of HOT WATER MUSIC's hoarsely-shouted defiance to craft their own niche - desperate without implying resignation, helpless without feeling hopeless, downhearted but never defeated. It's furious mid-tempo rock heavily steeped in distorted minor chords, all tied together by lyrics that scrutinize the turbulent personal and social relationships found in their community and, more likely than not, mirrored in our own
