    Drones is a necessary acquisition for anyone interested in Muhly's work outside pop.

    Muhly reminds us exactly why he's so successful, delivering engaging contemporary classical music without alienating a wider audience. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.94]

    Muhly seems at home in this world, and part of the enjoyment of Drones is in how it seems to observe, from Muhly's serene remove, how others are not.

    Though the scale of these EPs isn't as wide as some of Muhly's other recent works, it feels every bit as immediate.
