    The moment you think you've had enough, it's over with, leaving behind a trail of desire to press play, over and over again.

    The accompanying press release refers to the “spiritual geography of the album, which invokes the cyclical journey of water from the highest point in the Adirondack Mountains to the valley below and out to sea.” While Murr doesn’t quite maintain this premise--indeed, most of the offerings seem more intent on creating enticement courtesy of producer Jim James’ aural additives and Murr’s use of Mellotron, Omnichord, percussion, pocket piano and guitars—the sound is alluring all the same.

    There are lots of lightly retro arrangements and nods to 1960s bubblegum pop. [Jan 2019, p.22]

    Chilled psych-folk from a surreal world. [Jan 2019, p.92]
