    [A] cunning, witty album. [Oct 2012, p.62]

    In the moment of listening itself, the lo-fi complexities, interactions, and repetitions create a revelation

    Despite the occasionally fraught listening experience, Will Happiness Find Me? remains a record that is as fantastically compelling musically as it is thought-provoking.

    Minerva (née Juur) takes a few steps closer to the blurry line that separates quirky, home-taped experiments and straight-up club cuts.

    The new LP from bright and bookish producer Maria Minerva (AKA Maria Juur), Will Happiness Find Me? is a surprising mosaic of deeply pained electronics paired with intense techniques, and a pop sensibility.

    Minerva's music remains an acquired taste, and Will Happiness Find Me? is not a record to convert people who've been put off by her stuff in the past. Still, it's noticeably clearer in its vision than anything she's put out before.
