Album artwork by Peter Nichols

"The last cassette I heard from this Valley ex-pat was some sort of Irish trad-oriented hoot. On this new one, while acoustic guitar is an element of the whole, the mix of styles is as wide and weird as Mr Robidoux’s actual ass! The guitar gets used regularly, but it feels as though it’s designed to act as an intermission between the other activities. Probably best known for his tenure with Speedy Ortiz, Robidoux shows himself to be a master or many instruments and his grasp of strange lumps of pop texture handled as avant readymades reminds me (at least procedurally) of old school French oddballs like Albert Marcoeur. — Byron Coley, The Wire: Adventures in Modern Music, July 2020
