  1. Under The Radar

    At times, when some tracks get particularly loopy and seem on the verge of collapse, it's hard to tell if that's the product of organized chaos or slippery excess.[Mar 2012, p.87]
  2. Mojo

    The atmosphere is generally furtive, and yet the songs are at their best when they tap you on the shoulder with a familiar rough-neck charm. [Feb 2012, p.102]
  3. Q Magazine
    Jan 10, 2012
    At times it's gently dreamlike and beautiful, but its ethereal ambitions often feel like a lack of focus rather than a statement of intent. [Feb. 2012 p. 111]

    At this point it's hard not to feel like the Trailer Trash Tracys who sounded pretty vital in 2009 have been left behind by a whole slew of bands that followed their starting gun and reached the finishing line quicker, and better.

    Most of the songs on Ester are like partially frozen ice cubes tossed into a drink on a warm day: they work for a little while, but they never turn into something truly solid, and end up dissolving pretty quickly.
