Great Startup PR firms? Anyone have a recommendation for a good PR firm?

We're looking for someone with experience in B2C mobile/web app space and really only looking for them to help with traditional PR (media outreach), not all the add ons some firms sell.  Budget is pretty flexible, since we're lucky enough to have funding.

Should be based in the US, or have strong US relationships.  Really appreciate your help or your push in the right direction.  It seems almost impossible to find recommendations for PR online.

We use Ed from EZ PR. He has a lot of relationships in the industry, and has been crushing it for our PR. More than happy to make an intro if you'd like. Just shoot me a note.
