    Music can be therapeutic, and Hildebrand's music is a perfect example of this.

    Ontario Gothic is an amazingly precise, contextually aware work that’s very easy to listen to as just beautiful music, but it’s also an album that asks the listener to try for more.

    Lush yet understated string arrangements by Arcade Fire collaborator Owen Pallett help make this a dream you'll want to get lost in.

    Ontario Gothic is certainly part of a great story; but as a perfectly satisfying half hour of modest and common dream-pop, it's not much of a story on its own.

    Gothic is another solid set, but you can also feel Hildebrand finding the borders on a sound that has the potential to sound limitless.
