Brand New Bag - 2007
“A refreshingly humble yet ambitious record that reveals its force with repeated listens, especially on the swooning noised laced Sometimes.”
- The Onion

“It’s a Cracker… 100% Guaranteed!”
- Miles of Music

“Iowan Kelly Pardekooper sounds as if he’s channeling The Dandy Warhols on Brand New Bag, the retro-rock, groovy title track that sets the album off on the right course. 8/10 stars”
- PopMatters

Haymaker Heart - 2005
“A sinuous atmospheric spaghetti-western shootout between Dire Straits and Calexico.”
- No Depression

“Haymaker Heart moves from Steve Earle to Beatles to Buzzcocks.”
- Rockzilla

House of Mud - 2003
“A moody alt-country original.”
- Nashville Scene

“Forced to pick favorites for the year, House of Mud is all grit and guts in the best possible sense!”
- Des Moines Register

Johnson County Snow - 2000
“There’s not a weak track to be found. The lyrics are wonderfully original and moving. I’m a DJ in Tucson and I’ve been playing the heck out of it.”
- KXCI, Laurie Starr

“Loaded with hooks, high energy, and hummable melodies. Pardekooper is a first-rate vocalist.”
- All Music Guide
