"Fresh and Unexpected"
-MUSIC FOR ROBOTS
-THE WASHINGTON POST
“In a mere half hour, Ragel solidifies himself as a prominently talented producer, creating 10 sharp and catchy soundscapes of experimental blue-eyed soul”
“one of the most utterly fascinating discs you’re likely to hear all year.”
“Booomboxxx is so stuffed with sound and form that it’s hard not to find something to like”
“performance saturates booomboxxx—especially on the grandiose opening title track and through Ragel’s finest moment of offbeat percussion and contemplative lyrics, the gorgeous and sincere “la la la la LA!”
"It's just weird enough to be interesting, but melodic enough to be considered pop music."
