"This year finds the Coffee Dates back in action with their sophomore RPM release Hitchcock. This time around they’ve ditched the Rock Band mics and upgraded to an 8-track, giving a significantly higher production value to their new recordings. Hitchcock has a tightness and shows their knack for song-writing, and it’s no doubt a product of them gigging and rehearsing a lot over the past year. The new album retains the fuzzy guitar tones and erratic Keith Moon-esque drumming from Wednesday Nights…, but the songs are catchier and more developed." - Damian Lethbridge, The Scope
