'permeated by a formidable sonic liveliness able to reconcile Helmut Lachenmann’s rough bruitisme with the hallucinated verticality of Stockhausen’s Helikopter Quartett' - review on Esoteros blog.

'This is music of extraordinary wit and power, as delicate as it is titanic, equal part waterfall, dewdrop and all in-between.' - from a wonderful review by Mark Medwin in Dusted Magazine.

A long interview, mostly about the disc, features on Planet Hugill. Included on playlists at The Rest is Noise and Night After Night.
