Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The sound is still ornate -- on 'Glass Hillside,' nylon-string embroidery melts into gilded choirs, with oddball melodies recalling Brit proggers Soft Machine."

Spin - "Throughout the record, words are just pathways through which the melody travels from one sweep to the next..."

Magnet - "The album is full of anxiety and tension, stocked with woozy melodies that float atop precise rhythms and dramatically calibrated guitars; it foregrounds its attention to detail."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he elements of PAINTED RUINS suggest that nature is the best solace in crazy times."

Paste (magazine) - "Throughout 11 melancholy tracks, one can feel the end of the world looming. While some of the songs focus on basic tasks or chores, they seem to exist as a way to contend with the disarray of society, almost like meditations."

Clash (magazine) - "Sinister shades of raw complexity tour the Brooklynites' fifth effort, from the slow crawl of `Wasted Acres' to the glassy elegance of `Three Rings'..."
