“...difficult and perplexing listen but beautiful and rewarding at the same time” — Kyle Bunkin
48 JJ • No 2
47 Kid Cudi • Man on the Moon: The End of Day
“Cudi articulates a sense of alienation vis-a-vis hip-hop, mass culture, and life in general over languorous, Sudafed-soaked melodies and bleak beats punctuated with distorted guitar riffs and melancholy orchestral hums.” — Stereo Subversion
“...throwing on your earbuds and listening to this album will make you forget all about the cold” — Letters Home From Camp
“Andy Hull spits some fantastic prose and flawlessly switches from charming sincerity to disturbing anguish at the drop of a hat.” — Get Fresh.
43 The Big Pink • A Brief History of Love
“Huge without being silly, atmospheric without being limpid, it's just booming, thundering neo-shoegazer of the finest variety.” — Central Target
“A throwback to 80's music like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran but fits perfectly in 2009.” — Art Nouveau Magazine
“Getting all these egos together could have been a disaster, but as it turned out, Monsters of Folk is an effort worth the wait, and the time.” — Each Note Secure
