about

"... a time capsule from an alternate past, as though a band of 70s Nashville malcontents had learned to harness the beauty of David Bowie in his prime. This isn’t classic rock, but it feels like something classic indeed." --Chicago Reader

"... another effort worth celebrating, particularly if you're a fan of lyrically savvy troubadours like Tom Waits and Jeff Tweedy." --USA Today

"Comerford stands out from the crowd of rootsy singer-songwriters by virtue of his outrageously tuneful songwriting and instinct for the perfect arrangement." --Little Village

"Album of the Month, June 2014." --Deli Magazine
