"What you’ll get here is Rachel Delgado’s weirdly calming, Portishead-ish, ’90s alt-vocals, stirred into a rhythm section that does anything from psychedelic to country to Latin to drum ’n’ bass-rooted percussion, all to a degree of intensely flexible comfort, more jammy than closely regimented, and just the right amount of cutesy." - Max Plenke, Las Vegas CityLife (1/16/13)
