“Released on Jan. 12, the album took the band two years to complete. Pasadena isn’t weighed down by the work that went into it, though: The confident grooves and sharp interplay between the group’s four members make it Marshall Poole’s best release to date.”

Boise Weekly ‘Pasadena’ Album Review

“The seemingly endless abyss of artistic vision we experience in Pasadena profoundly educates us to the fact, we know little-to-nothing about the limits of Marshall Poole and that is something to celebrate.  The forty-plus minute psych-cerebral dream sophomore release from Marshall Poole lifts us from our foundation and masterfully delivers a much-needed escape.”

Nanobot Rock Review for ‘Pasadena’

“Imagine Jimi Hendrix mixed in with some southern and garage rock flare … It’s like a match made in heaven. The production is like a stick of butter, melting in perfectly to its raw and haunting atmosphere. While the instrumentation and production are great on their own, so are its tracks, and holy hell these songs are awesome.”

“a ripper 11 track album … bringing some great southern psych rock to the table.” – The Craft Presents(Australia)


The Craft Presents (Australia) ‘Totems’ Album Review

Totems is one of the smartest local albums of 2015, but it could also hold its own against any national “southern psych rock” release. Maybe someone should start bottling Boise’s water…” –Boise Weekly


Boise Weekly ‘Totems’ Album Review

“…this band has been described as ‘a sweaty rock n’ roll hurricane’ (Idaho Statesman), and that’s deadly accurate. Swooning, dark, rhythmic, powerful rusty rock n’ roll with a strong female lead singer … They’re an elusive rock n roll beast.  They share a lot of stylistic similarities with the band Russian Circles – dark, heavy, free-flowing rock n’ roll. They just played Treefort Music Festival and are booked to play Inlander Music Festival in Spokane June 2nd. On their Facebook band page their members are listed as ‘A Feminist, an Acid-Cowboy, a Stranger, and a Mountain Man.’ Watch out for these guys.” – Next Northwest

“Infectious psych-rock from the Boise-hailing band that mixes strong pop sensibility into their own brand of heaviness.” –Portland Mercury


Portland Mercury

“Marshall Poole isn’t a person; it’s a four-piece rock ’n’ roll outfit that originated out of the Boise suburbs at a New Year’s party in 2011. While the band is most certainly from Idaho, much of the music of their late-2015 release Totems is full of grizzly psychedelic Southern rock licks. It’s music that speaks to your soul while also slapping you in the face.” – The Inlander

“When all modern music seems to be lackluster and Mumfording, this record is a massive right hook poised to knock them square on their ass. With just days left in the year, almost as if on purpose, Totems parks squarely on my top ten and I don’t doubt it will yours as well.” Nanobot Rock Reviews
