    Everything sounds gorgeous, from Little Scream's hazy warble to the two minutes of rainfall, audible rush-hour traffic, and wind chimes that end the album. This is an absolute beast of a debut.

    The Golden Record is an infinitely approachable and enjoyable welcome by an artist who sounds like she's here now, for the duration.

    Overall, I can honestly say that I enjoyed Little Scream and I'm interested to see what she'll do next.

    The Golden Record is a hushed but exciting new album, one that delivers some brilliant moments but, perhaps more importantly, promises a bright future for Little Scream.

    While The Golden Record is far from perfect, and occasionally falters and fails to make the impression it should, there is much to recommend here.

    As a palate-cleanser for those of us jaded on the overplay of St. Vincent or even the theatrico-folk-foray of Arcade Fire-esque energies, The Golden Record is sufficient and at its best sublime. At its worst, though, it's drifty, gossamer, and chilly.
