“‘Everything Breaks’ manages the uncommon trick of being both lovely and urgent…an elegiac litany of facts, descriptions, and/or circumstances, creating a kind of beauty-meets-tragedy atmosphere” — Fingertips Music
An exquisite sound full of breathy enthusiasm and a grandeur that’s really quite impressive. The Truth Is Like The Sun could be called the Sgt. Pepper of the indie set! — No Depression
“One of the more intriguing releases in quite some time…seamlessly stitches together dozens of different influences into a cohesive quilt of modern pop…not a bum track out of ten!”

“The 10-or-so-piece New York band pillages sophisticated ideas—from its ‘60s chamber-pop forebears, from the Brill Building songwriting factory, from classic French pop, and so on—and infuses its songs with a healthy dose of drama, romanticism and hope.” —New Haven Advocate
