    It's propulsive enough for dance floors, and dreamy enough for headphones. [25 Oct/1 Nov 2013, p.100]

    Despite its success, Give You The Ghost only hinted at what Poliça can do. Shulamith is a wilder, looser ride, both more experimental and more fully realized.

    It's been forever since I liked a local band, but this one might squeak in at #10 in my favorites of the year. I've listened to it two timesIt's been forever since I liked a local band, but this one might squeak in at #10 in my favorites of the year. I've listened to it two times this morning. And to think I couldn't quite finishing listening to their first album. The slurred Cat Power vocals, sad and mysterious and restrained, are woven into claustrophobic little melodies. There is a delightful sameness from track to track, as if they are all telling a slightly different version of the same heartbreaking story. It's very self-assured, and the musical direction is clear. Electronica that makes you glad to be unhappy. I give it an 8 for it's confidence, it's ingrown melodies, and its dour verve. What a great mid-week surprise. Full Review »
