Doug Jenkins
of The Rikters

Catchy anthem rock with a snappy, sleek base and a few lyrical soft spots that makes the band, and their tunes, instantly likeable.
- Lisa Balde, The Daily Herald

Power rock trio The Rikters proves less is more on its new EP, Don't You Get It. The group's barebones arrangements allow its musicianship to shine through on punchy, pop-worthy numbers like "Want It, You Got It." But just as inviting is lead vocalist Doug Jenkins' unusual introspection on lines like 'Wondering if true love is really Disney propaganda.
- Max Herman (Illinois Entertainer) on Don't You Get It

The Rikters are back with Don't You Get It, a 7-song EP that flies by while listening to it and gets better every time. Guitarist/singer Doug Jenkins really shows off his voice on these songs, especially on "Want It You Got It." "You" is a flat out rocker and parts of "Give Me the Wheel" dabble in Radiohead territory. Great bass lines, sharp guitar and pounding drums are prevalent throughout this indie/power pop disc. With 2 eps under their belt, I'm hoping for a full length follow up that rocks as hard as this EP.
- Kyle J.  on Don't You Get It

The band's straight power rock and the way Jenkins' voice carries remind me of more recent Ted Leo & the Pharmicists. There's a energy and excitement as the band course through the "One Way," its the anthemic sort of song that launched a thousand parties.
