"Austin Chronicle review of Trio Del Rio's Debut Album "This Time Around it""

...guaranteed to be vocally golden, so it's no surprise that Trio Del Rio's This Time Around It is a sterling collection of engagingly percussive, vaguely Dan Hicks-ish songs from the team of Tanner Swain and MariLisa with Price. Their velvety neo-swing makes you long for cooler climbs while scanning the back 40 ("Ever Since I Met'cha," "Blown Away," "What's to Say"), refreshing and relaxing, just when life demands a chill pill. - Margaret Moser - Austin Chronicle Aug.28 2009
