about

A neo-psychedelic road trip with velvety vocals, retro-reverb, and tape delay...


"Somewhat vaguely understated production values may be a deliberate but misguided attempt to evoke crude ’60s product. But Karen Zanes, with a vocal style somewhat reminiscent of Signe Anderson, fronts a band specializing in short songs evocative less of ’60s psychedelia than of the nouveau-psychedelia movement of the early 1980s..."
- Francis Dimenno (The Noise)

"It's as if they'd invited themselves to a party that fizzled out hours ago but had brought excellent metaphorical hash to share with anyone who's still awake."
- Barry Thompson (The Boston Phoenix)

"Karen Zanes' light voice contrasts with the buzzing guitars and battered drums, but on the quieter 'Country' she is given more space to emote, alongside a tasteful Hammond organ - an album highlight, this cut."
-Simon Lewis (Terrascope UK)
