“Dyschronia is an album eerily aligned with its time, as it addresses technology, surveillance, wiretapping and the disconnected plight of the modern era, while exuding an aesthetic appeal. Today’s industrial societies are approaching total technological...

Joe Sampson “Chansons de Parade” Reviewed at Music Won’t Save You

In the sequel of songs that follow in an agile parade, there are some of the most vibrant harmonic structures, accompanied by more definite dynamics (“Gown” and especially “Otherwise The Pull”), but all of them Characterized by an extraordinary naturalness of writing and interpretation, that of a craftsman of songs able to create small wonders that, while being made up of those same elements, travalicano of momentum every cliché of the songwriter guitar and voice.

Craig Hallsworth “What’s The Story With This Hole?” Reviewed at Luna Kafe

Hallsworth’s songs has a certain glow and warmth, as this is poppy, melodic guitar rock with elegance and a human touch. Plain, neat pop songs. Period. When checking out “We’re Too Far Away…”, I compared the song’s atmosphere and attitude with some of the Kiwi rock from the Flying Nun label years back. Another reference could be the power-pop of Matthew Sweet, but maybe also The dB’s, Velvet Crush, my old fave Tall Grass Captains of Greater Chicago and several others.
