CTD Press Update 8/2/11!

CTD Press Update 08/02/2011
Now Available Exclusively/Semi Exclusively from CTD:

FEATURED:

Szczepanik, Nicholas
“Please Stop Loving Me”
Drag City/Streamline: stream1031
PITCHFORK 7.8:
“There is a lot to love here, much of it mesmerizing, even soothing. Just don't turn your brain off, because Szczepanik is more interested in challenging than hypnotizing...Szczepanik excels at finding subtlety and nuance in immersive volumes. Even at his softest here, he could fill an airplane hangar with his music”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15689-please-stop-loving-me/


UPCOMING SOON:

Cronin, Mikal
“Mikal Cronin”
Trouble in Mind: tim031
DEATH AND TAXES:
“Judging from ‘Get Along’ and ‘Apathy,’ the upcoming LP sounds pretty promising. The two tracks build on the lo-fi fuzz of Mikal’s many West Coast affiliations but noticeably follow a more pop route with cleaner vocals, plenty of harmonies and nods to ’60s psych. It all creates a heavily infectious blend of garage rock.”
http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/123711/listen-mikal-cronins-apathy-and-get-along-produced-by-ty-segall/

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND Top 10 MP3s of the week - “Apathy”:
“This song is all kinds of amazing, from the machine-gun snare fills to the catchy-as-shit chorus where Cronin implores that he “don’t want apathy”, and you’ve no choice but to believe him. It’s a perfect mix of pop and fuzz to draw ears of all kind. Put it on, and put it on loud, why don’t ya?.”
http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/07/top-10-mp3s-of-the-week-729/
SF WEEKLY:
“‘Apathy’ sounds like a forgotten MTV Buzz Bin hit from about 1994, with its soft acoustic intro and relentlessly catchy chorus. The song then rises into a noisy climax complete with what sound like off-kilter saxophones. It's pretty rad.”
http://blogs.sfweekly.com/shookdown/2011/07/hear_apathy_by_mikal_cronin_ty.php

KATIE DARBY RECOMMENDS:
“As soon as the first few lines of ‘Apathy’ flew out of my stereo, I was sold on Cronin– not just as a musician, but as a composer. The way this song fits together reminds me of the way I felt when I was listening to early Beck records; this isn’t a completely new venture, but it feels new and fresh. I love the way the instruments in the song jump in and out; I love the controlled chaos. If ‘Apathy’ is any indication, this guy is fantastic.”
http://www.katiedarbyrecommends.com/2011/07/27/keep-listening-for-mikal-cronin/

CITIZEN DICK.com:
“Just like his work with Segall, Cronin's LP promises a collection of gritty and attitude-laden garage rock. I've professed my undying adoration for Segall's Goodbye Bread too many times to count on this here blog. I'm already considering this album a perfect counterpart for the second half.”

ALTERED ZONES:
“Opening itself up wider with each play, this is a good record in the truest sense of the word.”
http://alteredzones.com/posts/1682/mikal-cronin-apathy/

RAVEN SINGS THE BLUES.com:
“Cleaner than we've heard him in a long time, the record packs a huge whollop in its three-minute garage-pop punches. Scraping its way through fuzz, jangle, slow burn motions and even a few psychedelic breakdowns, the record is nothing if not infectious; opening itself up wider with each play.”
http://ravensingstheblues.blogspot.com/2011/07/mikal-cronin.html

AUSTIN TOWN HALL.com:
“If you toss in a little more melody on Segall’s formula for psych-rock, perhaps remove a bit of hazy tones, and this is pretty much what you’re going to get. I know, right! Sounds pretty awesome, so jump on the wagon now…”
http://networkedblogs.com/kIX8n

IMPOSE MAGAZINE.com:
“Much like Segall's excellent Goodbye Bread, Cronin is maturing beyond the grimy scuzz with little hint of growing pains.”

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND: TOP 10 MP3s OF THE WEEK:
http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/07/top-10-mp3s-of-the-week-729/

Locrian
“Dort Ist Der Weg”
Flingco Sound System: fss014
TINY MIX TAPES:
“Locrian conjure the brooding underbelly lurking beneath the original's ethereal vocals.”
http://www.tinymixtapes.com/chocolate-grinder/listen-locrian-dort-ist-der-weg-popol-vuh-cover

LURKER’S PATH:
“Instead of producing some rehashed, dormant clone copy of this almost inimitable track, Locrian serve up a ritually hypnotic and powerful piece of music that will floor you.”
http://www.lurkerspath.com/2011/07/20/locrian-dort-ist-der-wegfrozen-in-ash/

THE INARGUABLE:
“Who else can effortlessly move about the black metal, noise, doom, post-rock, drone, and psychedelic spheres while still retaining that coherent ‘We are still the same band’ sort of sound?.”
http://www.theinarguable.com/2011/07/locrian-dort-ist-der-weg-bw-frozen-in.html

CVLT NATION:
“How many times did I listen to this record on repeat? I would say around 7. It’s all good, now I know what magick sounds like....”

Razika
“Program 91”
Smalltown Supersound: sts210
FADER INTERVIEW WITH RAZIKA:
“Norway’s Razika made a sweet, sweet album Program 91 (91 as in 1991 as in the year they were born!) that’s so sugary it almost gave us a toothache. That’s a compliment. They’re 20 years old, high school’s over, things are good. So many people are trying so many complicated things with music, it can be nice to hear something that’s just about the joy of being young and wanting to go on strolls in the park with boys you like. The Ramones understood that, and so does Razika.”
http://www.thefader.com/2011/08/01/interview-razika/

FADER REVIEW OF “Eg Vetsje”:
“...we need great pop rock like this. It’s infinitely listenable.”
http://www.thefader.com/2011/06/23/razika-eg-vetsje-riktig-mp3/

GUARDIAN UK:
“This is faithful stuff, pretty straight and unreconstructed, with nice choruses, sweet vocals and a bubblegum bounce.”
http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2011/jul/08/new-band-razika

ARTROCKER - ALBUM OF THE SUMMER 2011 5 STARS!!:
“...they’re totally brilliant; using the regular set up of bass, drums, guitars and all that polava, that they somehowe manage to create snappy, breezy and lime-fresh sound. Why don’t millions of bands sound this magical?”
http://www.smalltownsupersound.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/ArtRockerAlbumOfTheSummerAlbumReviewAugSept1.jpg

HTRK
“Eat Yr Heart”
Ghostly International: gi142
PITCHFORK FORKCAST of “Eat Yr Heart”:
“Eat Yr Heart" is a cavernous first taste from Work (work, work), the forthcoming full-length from London electro-bruisers HTRK, due September 6”
http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15968-eat-yr-heart/

PREFIX MAG.com:
“The duo recorded the album in the aftermath of the suicide of third founding member and bassist Sean Stewart in March 2010. The result is understandably dark, though peppered with undeniably beautiful moments.”
http://www.prefixmag.com/media/htrk/eat-yr-heart/53617/

TINY MIX TAPES:
“Work, (Work, Work) will hopefully introduce music fans in these fine U States of A to this totally awesome band...”
http://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/ghostly-international-signs-htrk-gloomiest-magical-est-band-around

RESIDENT ADVISOR:
“HTRK (pronounced "hate rock") have a haunting, contemplative sound that's earned them praise from blogs like 20jazzfunkgreats along with mainstream publications like NME.”
http://www.residentadvisor.net/news.aspx?id=14356

IMPOSE MAGAZINE:
“From what we can glimpse from the lead off track "Eat Yr Heart," there is a cathartic murmur that permeates the entire track, accompanied by keys that squeak like door mice amid the solemn dark vocals provided by Jonnine Standish.”
http://www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/week-in-pop-zola-jesus-j-dilla-fanzine

MTV IGGY:
“The preview track ‘Eat Yr Heart’ is a haunting, slow, droney number with 80s new wave lurking in the shadows of their signature distorted basslines. It’s sludgy, heavy, purposely sloppy, and vaguely scary. Perfect for a goth summer.”
http://www.mtviggy.com/blog-posts/htrk-previews-spooky-new-lp-with-eat-yr-heart/

RCTD LBL:
“On Eat Yr Heart, the now London-based duo builds a glacial crescendo over a steady, syrupy hip-hop beat, submerged bass and horrifying, flute-tinged synth figures that buzz around singer Jonnine Standish's voice like flies on a carcass. Oddly, this doesn't turn out too abrasive. The slow tempo and smokey romance of the vocals keep things too chill to devolve into complete terror.”
http://rcrdlbl.com/2011/06/29/download_htrk_eat_yr_heart

INDIE 30:
“...an icy and sparse, yet deceptively emotional, intense effort, we're in for a ride full of contradictions and confounded expectations.”
http://indie30.com/component/content/article/36-news-archive/484-htrk-set-to-release-new-album.html

BRAINWASHED:
“The gritty electronic sound design and simple beauty of these 10 new songs belie the sheer psychic weight to be found on this record”
http://brainwashed.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=8836:htrk-announce-new-album-work-work-work-due-september-6-2011&catid=72:buzz-bin&Itemid=95


STILL FRESH & OUT NOW!
Thing with Jim O’Rourke
“Shinkjuku Growl”
Smalltown Superjazzz: stsj201
UNCUT 4/5:
“A great homage to ’60s pioneers and, over 40 years on, still very much the New Thing.”
http://www.uncut.co.uk/

Thing with Otomo Yoshihide
“Shinkjuku Crawl”
Smalltown Superjazzz: stsj169
MILK FACTORY:
“The Thing are an unpredictable formation at best, and these two records are as different to each other as they are to the rest of the trio’s cannon. At their most intimate and delicate, The Thing deliver a particularly fine album with Shinjuku Crawl, but they let their incendiary nature resurface with panache on Shinjuku Growl.”
http://www.themilkfactory.co.uk/st/2011/07/the-thing-with-otomo-yoshihide-shinjuku-crawl-the-thing-with-jim-orourke-shinjuku-growl-smalltown-superjazz/

Ty Segall
“Goodbye Bread”
Drag City: dc479
PITCHFORK OVERLOOKED RECORDS 2011:
“While fellow garage-rock up-and-comers like Smith Westerns clean up their sound and go glam, Segall keeps things messy, playing every instrument on Goodbye Bread and retaining a certain trash-can fidelity while still showing a stylistic dexterity that nobody really expected from him. It's proof that Segall is a restless talent with a whole lot more to offer.”
http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-lists/8008-overlooked-records-2011/2/

FUSE TV - Live performance of “You Make The Sun Fry”:
http://www.fuel.tv/music/#/ty-segall-you-make-the-sun-fry

PITCHFORK 8.1!:
“In Goodbye Bread, his first full-length for Drag City, Segall has embraced singer-songwriter craft wholeheartedly. While garage rock O.G.s like the Troggs and the Stooges continue to be an influence, Segall has turned in a relatively calm effort here, choosing to downshift into slower tempos and cleaner sounds, evoking instead the work of John Lennon, Neil Young, and Marc Bolan. Heavyweights. But what makes Goodbye Bread such a success is that we get an even keener sense of what a Ty Segall song sounds like and what that means.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15557-goodbye-bread/

FADER:
“The way Segall glides through the spaces from all-out raucous rock-mode to mellow and mild-mannered and everything in between and simply owns all of it. This ability mixed with a readily apparent improvement in songwriting means that though Goodbye Bread is no doubt impressive on repeat listens. Whatever comes next could be scary good.”
http://www.thefader.com/2011/06/20/the-tripwire-ty-segalls-gliding-through-all-things-rock/

DUSTED:
“Segall is still young, and appears to be moving at an accelerated rate. Each record is better than the one before it. This isn’t something you get to watch every day. This is someone entering his prime, on the cusp of finding a voice. If you aren’t already, the time to pay attention is now.”
http://dustedmagazine.com/reviews/6493

WASHINGTON POST:
“Segall has both diversified and focused his sound, making for his best album to date….”
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/click-track/post/quick-spins-ty-segall-iceage-justin-moore/2011/06/21/AGxtOTeH_blog.html

ADEQUACY.NET:
“Goodbye Bread is a fitting development on an impeccable path. The depth accomplished through five albums is obviously grand and it’s definitely as if Segall is purely improving with every passing year.”
http://www.adequacy.net/2011/06/ty-segall-–-goodbye-bread/

Nadler, Marissa
“S/T”
Box of Cedar: boc001
PITCHFORK OVERLOOKED RECORDS 2011
“If you measured artists' popularity by the devotion of their cults, Marissa Nadler wouldn't exactly be overlooked. After four finely wrought neo-folk albums, the Massachusetts-based songwriter got by with a little help from her fans in making this self-titled, self-released album. That successful Kickstarter funding campaign bears deeply rewarding fruit on Marissa Nadler, an uncommonly detailed album that's full of otherworldly romantic melancholy, whether in country-glinting "The Sun Always Reminds Me of You" or synth-touched "Baby, I Will Leave You in the Morning". Nadler's patient, often-elliptical songwriting shines through clearly enough to welcome a whole new crowd of rabid supporters.”
http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-lists/8008-overlooked-records-2011/2/

ALARM PRESS:
“Now, on her fifth proper LP in just seven years, Nadler has truly found a voice within the realm of dreamlike folk. Building on a style that she has crafted on past efforts, she continues to improve her fairytale folk pop, diving into deeper waters of heartbreak and reflection on this self-titled album.”
http://alarmpress.com/36898/blog/columns/pop-addict-marissa-nadlers-marissa-nadler/

NPR FIRST LISTEN STREAMING “S/T”:
“Marissa Nadler has drawn a big response...Her dreamy, fragile folk songs are revered among an assortment of tastemakers, but they haven't yet broken through to a larger audience. Her new self-titled album should help change all that.'”
http://www.npr.org/2011/06/05/136829503/first-listen-marissa-nadler-marissa-nadler

SPIN BEST NEW ARTIST FOR JUNE 2011:
SPIN Music Editor Charles Aaron says: “There are several mixtape keepers on this album, where her willingness to be openly vulnerable, and to expose her voice to the point that it even sounds shaky or strained, pays off in wonderfully poignant drama, especially when the slide guitar sighs just so.”
http://www.spin.com/gallery/spins-5-best-new-artists-june?page=4#main

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “The Sun Always Reminds Me Of You”:
“‘The Sun Always Reminds Me Of You’ is a pedal steel-wrapped heartbreaker….”

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “Baby, I Will Leave You In The Morning”:
“This is the sound of an artist coming into her own.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/12146-baby-i-will-leave-you-in-the-morning/

PITCHFORK NEW RELEASE INFO:
“...Nadler says, 'It's the most honest, natural record I've ever written... I'm no longer hiding. The mystery still exists in the music as an aesthetic tool, but the songs cut harder because of the vocal mix, with more varied colors than my other records.'”
http://pitchfork.com/news/42014-marissa-nadler-announces-new-album/

NO DEPRESSION:
“There is a lot of talent, strength and intelligence in this woman….”

"The dream-folk songstress possesses long, flowing hair, classic beauty, a lush, emotive voice, and crafts songs with equal parts pain and sweetness."

Diskjokke
“Sagara”
Smalltown Supersound: sts204
FOXY DIGITALIS:
“Consciously or not, DiskJokke (aka Joachim Drydhal) has skillfully invoked the spirits of many of the old EM masters on this disk… In fact, Sagara is really quite beautiful – and that should be sufficient.”
http://www.foxydigitalis.com/foxyd/?p=12651

PITCHFORK:
“Dyrdahl never received enough credit for the excellent sound design of his work, and while Sagara seems nothing more than an interesting detour, his careful ear and sense of structure are here in spades.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15584-sagara/

RCRD LBL Free download of “Pantup” with review:
“Sagara, out this week on Smalltown Supersound, is more like cocoon-‘til-Christmas, but it’s great just the sames.”

NEW YORK TIMES Preview of Sagara:
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/12/arts/music/new-cds-by-bbc-woods-diskjokke-and-youssou-ndour.html?_r=2

PITCHFORK FORKCAST OF “Pantup”:
http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15679-panutup/

EXCLAIM!:
“...if the lead track "Panutup" is like the rest of the album, it will be one unique listening experience.”
http://exclaim.ca/News/diskjokke_returns_with_sagara_lp

SOME KIND OF AWESOME:
“I don't know what the heck is going on in Norway but I do not care. The electronic music that comes out of that country is RIDICULOUS!.”
http://www.somekindofawesome.com/journal/2011/4/22/download-diskjokke-panutup.html

CHART ATTACK:
“There's no space for judgment while you're listening; its songs need to be absorbed en masse. Whether or not you're willing give it a second spin may hinge on how good your headphones are. The right cans pick up a lot of subtleties in this disc.”
http://www.chartattack.com/reviews/2011/jun/15/diskjokke-—-sagara

TIME OUT NEW YORK:
“Sagara’s not a total break from his past work, as Dyrdahl’s repertoire has always had a sedate, hypnotic, and richly melodic edge to it. But it does perhaps show a promising evolution in the path that this evolving artist is taking—at the very least, he’s picked up a few more tricks for his next cosmic-disco odyssey.”

“Wallahi Le Zein: Wezin, Jackwar & Guitar Boogie From The Islamic Republic of Mauritania”
Locust/Latitude: latitude07

NPR:
“A new compilation of Mauritanian guitar music released by Latitude Records, an imprint of Chicago indie label Locust Music, captures some of these raw live performances, rarely heard outside the Maghreb.”
http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-07-27/global-notes-comp-captures-rawness-rarely-heard-mauritanian-guitar-virtu

CHICAGO READER:
“Terse, bluesy runs, vicious stabs, and tightly coiled solos cut through even the worst fidelity with a biting, brittle attack. If only all field recordings were this exciting.”
http://www.chicagoreader.com/gyrobase/three-beats-aram-shelton-latitude-records-cococoma-marble-vanity/Content?oid=4065366&storyPage=2

PITCHFORK 8.0!!:
“Wallahi Le Zein is somewhat similar to a Sublime Frequencies radio or field recording release, except that this has a much deeper interest in the musicological, historical, and cultural underpinnings of what's going on here. Lavoie isn't just putting this stuff out there for you - the liner notes are an educational document reflecting years of research and real, focused passion for the subject matter, rather than a basic interest in otherness. This is in some ways this compilation's greatest gift - this is the first curated collection of unfiltered Mauritanian guitar music ever, and I'm glad it's been introduced with such thoroughness and care.”

Com Truise
“Galactic Melt”
Ghostly International: gi138
PITCHFORK 7.3!!:
“…with its staccato, bonus level synth stabs, keening psychedelia and 1980s-drenched drum sounds, Melt is still very identifiably Truise.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15604-galactic-melt/

SPIN 7/10:
“Boards of Canada meets Vangelis...”
http://www.spin.com/reviews/com-truise-galactic-melt-ghostly-international

BBC BEST ALBUMS OF JUNE 2011:
“(Com Truise) demonstrates a sight more depth than a lot of stuff that's been tagged as chillwave.”
http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcmusic/2011/07/the_best_albums_of_june_2011.html

URB 4/5:
“Galactic Melt manages to be both dark and upbeat at the same time. It’s filled with well-composed and highly aesthetic tracks. Com Truise makes synthetic and emotional music, nostalgic and spaced out like a German or Russian Sci-fi score, and the songs melt into each other without sounding repetitive and recycled. 10 tracks of pure seamless joy.”

Cliffie Swan
“Memories Come True”
Drag City: dc451
PITCHFORK 7.3!!:
“Just as the disc's knotty pop lead-in often calls to mind Fleetwood Mac without ever quite going full McVie, there's something about this mid-LP mix of vocal serenity and bleary guitar crunch that suggests they've been rummaging around in the mid-90s buzzbin. But they've gotten so good at couching even their more obvious influences in threads of ambling melody that any easy comparisons seem somehow beside the point. That's a big shift from Rites, an album that seemed most impressive for the derring-do of its genre-stacking. Echoes of everything from the Breeders to Black Sabbath may ring throughout Memories now and again, but there's a serenity and self-possession driving these tunes that isn't on loan from any other band.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15573-memories-come-true/

These Trails
“S/T”
Drag City: dc463
PITCHFORK 7.5:
“Primarily written and performed by singer-songwriters Margaret Morgan and Patrick Cockett, the album has long circulated among fans of obscure psych-folk, and it has been reissued several times in perhaps-not-entirely-legit versions. The album's reputation is well-earned, as These Trails is a lovely and incredibly evocative slice of Pacific folk-rock, and Drag City has performed a good service by finally reissuing the album in a handsome new authorized edition..”

Drag City: dc485, dc474, dc475, dc476, dc477
ROLLING STONE 4/5:
“His grainy vocal tenderness in San Francisco Mabel Joy evokes the combined haunting of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake, while An American Trilogy is, in Newbury's grip, patriotic anguish for a country at war with itself.”
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/an-american-trilogy-box-set-20110621

MOJO 4 STARS:
“Three of his early albums, possibly his best, are collected here in a lovingly conceived box set.”
http://www.mojo4music.com

UNCUT - REISSUE OF THE MONTH (JUNE 2011):
“The least his memory deserves is to hear the songs the way he heard them, and this set represents a chance that should be seized lustily...An overdue monument to an overlooked songwriter.”
http://www.uncut.co.uk/

THE WIRE:
“His songs feel like prayers for the brokenhearted many, as if he has consigned himself to perpetual heartache to imbue the songs with a crueler reality.”
http://www.thewire.co.uk

RECORD COLLECTOR:
“This exquisite collection offers a more fitting context for Newbury’s neglected recordings - once heard, forever smitten. It’s impossible to resist the emotional pull of his voice and artistry.”
http://www.recordcollectormag.com/reviews/review-detail/6973

NO DEPRESSION:
“There is only one word that comes to mind for making this package so detailed, so intimate, and so passionate in the little things that made Newbury’s music so endearing to those who got it - and that word is Love.”
http://www.nodepression.com/profiles/blogs/an-american-trilogy-mickey

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER:
“An American Trilogy is an excellent introduction to the mind and music of Mickey Newbury. The three albums contained here form the highlights of an often overlooked career that is well worth resurrecting.”

“...ten tracks of good old-fashioned guitar rock – crunchy, loud and tuneful...there are few rock groups as dependable as Antietam.”
http://www.bigtakeover.com/recordings/antietam-tenth-life-carrot-top

CHICAGO TRIBUNE:
“…[Tenth Life] is among its most direct, 10 fat-free songs gorged on melody, with typically thoughtful lyrics that consider midlife as both a challenge and an opportunity.”
http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.com/turn_it_up/2011/06/antietams-tara-key-on-a-mission-to-claim-rock-for-my-generation.html

ADEQUACY:
“…Tenth Life is another solid, memorable and crucial piece in a jigsaw-like canon that refuses to be finished without an age-defying fight.”
http://www.adequacy.net/2011/05/antietam-tenth-life/

CYCLIC DEFROST:
“Tenth Life is at once a continuation of the classic first-generation indie rock sound and – at its core – just an amazing guitar record.”
http://www.cyclicdefrost.com/blog/2011/03/31/antietam-–-tenth-life-carrot-top/

Bathgate, Chris
“Salt Year”
Quite Scientific: qsr021
CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND:
“Chris Bathgate owns the voice and the melancholy of someone twice his age, and Salt Year packages enough charm to spare.”
http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/04/album-review-chris-bathgate-salt-year/

AV CLUB:
“...there’s a welcome hint of triumph in the personal trials Bathgate and band swaddle in layers of stormy guitar, lonesome fiddle, and clattering percussion.”
http://www.avclub.com/articles/chris-bathgate-salt-year,55083/

Implodes
“Black Earth”
Kranky: krank156
PITCHFORK 7.5:
“...the most interesting thing about Black Earth is what it bodes for Implodes' future. If they can already mold this many sounds into the same tonal shape, imagine what further sonic territory they might someday place their stamp on.”
http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15465-black-earth/

STEREOGUM "BAND TO WATCH":
“At times these songs feels more dire or dirge-like — the beautiful riverside sunset on the cover comes with a woman wielding a knife — but each of the 11 tracks is beautifully melodic. Most are patiently catchy, darkly propulsive.”
http://stereogum.com/641731/band-to-watch-implodes/franchises/band-to-watch/

DROWNED IN SOUND:
“Implodes will do fine so long as they keep carving out bleak soundscapes that are as atmospheric, otherworldly and starkly beautiful as Black Earth”
http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16191/reviews/4142592

FENSEPOST:
“Put on headphones, crank up Black Earth, close your eyes and watch the nightmare that your subconscious produces on the backs of your eyelids. It will be terrifying and brilliant.”
http://www.fensepost.com/main/2011/04/05/implodes-black-earth-album-review/

Arborea
“Red Planet”
Strange Attractors Audio House: saah067
NPR WORLD CAFE NEXT:
“Shanti and Buck Curran live in the western mountains of Maine and are already names in psychedelic music circles. The recently released Red Planet, the band's fourth LP, will likely expand on that audience.”

http://www.npr.org/2011/05/02/135924916/arborea-on-world-cafe-next
PORTLAND PHOENIX:
“...Shanti and Buck Curran also seem to exist outside of time itself, both inhabiting a world that never actually was and pacing their songs so that they seem to make time elastic.”

http://portland.thephoenix.com/music/119232-arborea-sail-across-a-fossil-sea
PORTLAND HERALD PRESS:
“The project enjoys an utterly unteachable gift in Shanti's weightless vocals. Her instrument is rich and trembling bellows, capable of holding gauzy pitches on clouds of air.”

http://www.pressherald.com/life/go/arboreas-red-planet-beguiles-and-rewards-the-soulful-listener-_2011-04-21.html?searchterm=Arborea
DELTA-SLIDER.COM:
“After 51 minutes of being under the Arborea spell you might wonder where you’ve been. It’s a time spent in another world, it feels a bit frightening but irresistible.”
