press buzz on the apothecary ep
My Old Kentucky Blog posted two mp3s and said, “What Lou Reed would sound like if he was asked to front Tom Waits’ Mule Variations band… Highly recommended to fans of Leonard Cohen.”
Blurt gave the album 8 stars out of 10, saying, “One of the more striking debuts this annum… Let’s hear a full-length, soon.”
PopDose called us “a wholly original outfit that just released one of the most exciting musical debuts of the year.”
Largehearted Boy posted an mp3.
HitFix previewed the release, saying, “Brooklyn indie act’s debut recalls Lou Reed or Leonard Cohen fronting a lo-fi Americana band complete with smart, literate lyrics.”
No Depression did a Q&A on the musical project, praising the “narratives of bus rides, trains and bars, windmills, roast beef sandwiches and Russian overcoats are penned with a novelist’s eye for detail and delivered in a wry New York baritone.”
