    Semi-decent, rainy Sunday morning records are a dime a dozen, but when they connect, it's like a Bloody Mary-bruised brunch with your best friends, and Lily & Madeleine Jurkiewicz have crafted a moody gem, and one of the most achingly comforting albums of 2013.
  2. It may be a bit rushed--too sickly sweet for one sitting, while their youthful lyrics will ripen yet--but the hit rate is nonetheless impressively high.

    The girls have made a gorgeously restrained full-length debut that intimates both youthfulness in its most innocent state and startling self-awareness. [Nov 2013, p.74]

    There are missteps--like “I’ve Got Freedom,” with the kind of twinkle-lilt that feels pitched to the marketing arm of Apple--but far more common are the minutely scaled successes.

    Accompanied by subtle orchestral arrangements, Lily and Madeleine's voices sparkle throughout, like angels in the ether. [Nov-Dec 2013, p.99]

    They blend together perfectly on this debut album of melodic acoustic folk, but it's a melding so perfect as to be (churlish though it sounds) pretty boring.

    Fantastic debut from two sisters intertwining their voices beautifully as one. Beyond their lush voices, the entire album in filled with gorgeous melodies and surprisingly strong songwriting. It's become one of my most listened to records of the year. Expand
