Album Reviews:

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Playing with a small band, she sets up intricate backing tracks that lean a little on jazz and funk, but it's her insistence on memorable hooks in the chorus that make the songs special.

Uncut (magazine) (p.89) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hese are strong, simple songs with emotions that transcend language."

Uncut (magazine) (p.32) - Ranked #34 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[With] a sound that was sweet, poppy but far from compromised."
