    Vermont find unexpected warmth in the almost mathematical precision of these restrained but seductive instrumentals. [Apr 2014, p.83]

    Despite the record's impromptu genesis, its results sound endearing. [Apr 2014, p.93]

    An album that's idiosyncratic, varied, beautifully nuanced and compelling in a field filled with music that fades vaguely into the background.

    The results are both easily enjoyable and unexpectedly refreshing.

    This is an antidote to both Plessow and Worgull’s respective day jobs and the way they craft their soundscapes is admirable.

    Whether they're taking inspiration from '70s kosmische or more contemporary sounds, Vermont's debut album is continually intriguing and texturally rich.

    If you persevere, it’s an LP that will reveal it’s creamy goodness in due time. You’ve got to wine’n'dine it, not just expect to jump into bed.

    Vermont is a side project that sounds like one, a pastime for Plessow and Worgull, a minor curiosity for their fans.
