Build, “Rocking post-classical quintet which takes inspiration from minimalist chamber music, instrumental rock, modal jazz, and more” -New York Magazine
Victoire, “Is Victoire’s music post-rock, post-mimimalist or pseudo-post-pre-modernist indie-chamber-electronica? It doesn’t particularly matter. It’s just good music.” -NPR
itsnotyouitsme, “meltingly beautiful” -The New York Times
Empyrean Atlas, “Minimalist drive and Afropop shimmer – a bright infectious mix.” -Time Out NY
