Named one of the Albums of the Year by Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune, and Vocalo.
“A master of slow-motion psychedelia, the better to appreciate his wryly bittersweet lyrics, the former Kid Million vocalist and multi-instrumentalist remains one of the city’s most evolved pop craftsmen of the last decade.” - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune and NPR's Sound Opinions
“This chronically underrated Chicago musician has given us another set of smart, literate, heartfelt psychedelic pop musing on no less a subject than the importance of music in our lives in this solipsistic era of the easy download.”
- Jim DeRogatis, Vocalo.com
