9/10 Brian Staff review, 22 October 2010

Well after over a year of writhing away to the atmospheric strains of their mini-LP Exquisite Corpse, these 4 LA geniuses finally unleash the beast, I mean "The Fool". 9 tracks this time & their template remains approximately the same. Harmonies mingle with spectral, ethereal guitars, airy fluid bass & steady ever-evolving drum patterns.

They have a seriously laid-back attitude, these women, but their songs are much, much more than bliss-rock sketches. They realise the power of space and use it most wisely. The thing I love most about them is they don't really fit in to any particular genre. Their lullabies have as much in common with the brittle, tentative explorations of the XX as they do the heavenly majesty of Cocteau Twins. The most important thing to me is the songs are well structured, brilliantly played, and rather than merely present you with catchy throwaway pop nuggets, these tunes just flow & evolve in loose seductive patterns.

All-in-all a relatively downtempo & cerebral treat with lashings of rich textures & come-hither magic. This is slinky space pop at its best.
