  • Summary: Orenda Fink and her friend Scalpelist (Cedric LeMoyne of Remy Z) releases their debut album produced by Michael Patterson.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. The duo's engaging, self-titled debut isn't quite as easy to parse as their moniker. [May 2009, p.123]
  2. This is a pleasant album and should be enjoyed for its ethereal and danceable contents.
  3. Songs whir and whoosh under the production of Michael Patterson (Beck, Ladytron), as thumping kicks, snares, and fuzz basslines keep the dream pop in time.
  4. Scalpelist's looped beats propel the songs with trip-hop force, anchored by Fink's monochromatic melancholy.
  5. Always the intrepid mind, Fink has found a promising partner in LeMoyne to bring out her weirder side, and once they do away with a few lingering old habits, the duo could prove an artistic pinnacle for both parties.
  6. As with most Fink efforts, the thrills are eclipsed by misfires. [Spring 2009, p.72]
