"Van Etten gracefully leads a four-piece band, drenched in wistful piano, sparingly deployed reverby guitars and a wonderfully grounding organ sound."
"'Small Things' is an understated and groovy breath of fresh air"
"San Cisco’s chiming guitars and infectious rhythms grant them absolute power over the sweaty, stinking mosh pit"
"Beck is well represented as an innovator, interpreter and virtuoso"
The musicianship is flawless, the harmonies sparsely beautiful and the acoustics superb. Alt-J draw you in, whisper in your ear then wash you away on an awesome wave of light and sound.
