    There's nothing but clouds on Occasion for Song, but rather than uninviting it's eminently listenable; an unflinching, graceful, truthful exploration of how to go on living when you've lost a friend, of how to recognize a world that suddenly seems that much darker and less hopeful.

    A complex, even contradictory record, not just the Black Swans' best but one of the most incisive and moving mediations on life and the loss of it in recent memory.

    Occasion for Song is remarkable in that it digs into all these different permutations of grief, from the sad to the funny to the strange, and in that way feels like a full statement, a completely realized letter to their lost friend and bandmate.
