“…there’s a depth and experimental spirit at play that make it well worthy of your attention.” Shindig!

“It culminates in the beautiful. hymn-like ‘Resurgam’, evoking images of Sir Hubert Parry let loose upon a microKORG.” Electronic Sound

“A welcome return from this under-rated band!” Penny Black Music

“Moving deftly between jazz-flecked haunted-house creepiness, folk-imbued waltzing and eerie shipwrecked-lamenting, with shades of both Tom Waits and Bernard Hermann at their most deconstructed, there is far more going on here than there first appears. Hopefully, this all-too-brief collection is only just the beginning of Fariña’s return to active duty.” Concrete Islands
