“Both artists find unique ways to blend acoustic and electronic elements, as well as structure and improvisation. Given both the quality of the music and the artwork, there's much for fans of experimental music to enjoy from this record.” -Foxy Digitalis
“What both hold in common is a sense of the psychedelic folk aspects of the works, high sonic assault on your senses along with a technical literacy, which has eschewed formalism in the search for new found ground.” -Cyclic Defrost (AU)
