  1. The Wire
    Just as David Tibet uses English folk to create his own apocalyptic mythos, so Wood takes the bare bones of Americana and makes something personal and timeless. [Oct 2008, p.58]
  2. Mojo
    This first widely available release is a superb distillation of the duo's talents. [Dec 2008, p.112]
  3. Uncut
    His debut for Thurston Moore's label is another walk in the forest of heavy psych rock and avant folk, that blurs the boundaries between the timeless and traditional and the tres moderne. [Nov 2008, p.100]
  4. For those who haven't yet heard the band's delicate, experimental free-folk compositions, Hush Arbors is a great place to start and adroitly encompasses all of the Virginia based duo's most engaging qualities.
  5. It’s a soothing cushion of chaos, like a bloody valentine, a buzzing saw, and an amazing star exploding into particle dust.
  6. This very fine album takes you into the light, points out the lovely view, and encourages you to stay a while.
  7. No massive steps forward, admittedly, but I think Wood can justify exploring this patch of ground for a short while yet.

    Boring----didn't see what the hoopla was about--a VERY poor man's Bon Iver.
