Dylan Rodrigue Cat's Game is out now. Order a copy from

Listen to the album over at God Is In The TV Zine.

'stripped-down, confessional songwriting interweaved with mainly acoustic arrangements that are both elegant and essential' - Shindig! Magazine... the latest!

'Beautifully Intense, Eloquent and Just the Right Side of Melancholic Singer-Songwriter.......Who knows if Dylan Rodrigue will go on to win a Grammy or earn a million dollars from his music; but what I do know is that everyone who buys Cat’s Game will cherish it for life' - The Rocking Magpie

‘power-pop infectiousness with emotive indie-folk in the vein of Elliott Smith and Conor Oberst’ – Obscure Sound

'reared in a yoga-based community in Northern California, educated at CalArts (where he earned a degree in songwriting and avante-garde composition) and found inspiration in the work of artists such as The Beatles, FugaziPIXIES, Elliott Smith and Vic Chesnutt' - BuzzBands.LA

‘brings to mind some of Elliott Smith's darker simplicity whilst courting the outsider fragility of an earlier Ariel Pink' – God Is In The TV Zine

'someone we should all keep and an ear and an eye out for' - Gary Crowley BBC Radio London

'His work runs the gamut from solemn folk to fuzz rock. Rodrigue has gone from everyone else’s guitar-man to leader of the band, and we like what we hear' - American Standard Time ( KEXP)

'it's the intricate use of melodies that really sets this apart from anyone else. The songs are crafted with precision and there’s nothing there which doesn’t need to be' - Fear And Loathing zine

'standouts include 'Some Kinda Heaven' which sounds like a long-lost acoustic track by Big Star, and the downbeat indie rock of 'Minimize The Damage'...Fans of Pavement The Rock Band, Elliott Smith and Kurt Cobain will find in Rodrigue a similarly talented and distinctive artist' - Harmonic Distortion

‘Rodrigue brings together a sense of worldweariness and innocent musical simplicity, and does introspective and reflective without slipping into self-indulgence. And for that, I salute him’ - Whisperin' & Hollerin'

'inspired by the experimental rock of Neil Young, the edginess of Iggy And The Stooges, along with a dash of Elliott Smith' - JPs Music Blog

'Dylan Rodrigue’s ‘Cat’s Game’ is a complete introspective record with no filler. From top to bottom, this is an album, albeit a dark one, you will want to come back to again and again' - Innocent Words
