Szczepanik! Szczepanik! Szczepanik! Szczepanik! Szczepanik!

His name may be difficult to say 5 times fast (try it!)...but it's not as difficult to say as "7.8". That's right - Pitchfork.com has awarded his debut CD, Please Stop Loving Me, for Drag City's Streamline imprint, a 7.8 review.

To paraphrase ~

"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."

(Apparently - and thankfully so - Pitchfork did not take the album title as an actual request from the artist.)
