NME (Magazine) - "[H]e tackles new styles, utilising only an acoustic guitar on the desolate `Total Darkness'. Closer `Spanish Horses' is a beautiful piano ballad..."

Former frontman of N.Y.C. indie rockers the Virgins, Donald Cumming presented his solo debut, Out Calls Only, less than two years after the demise of the band in late 2013. A more introspective and reserved outing than those of the group, the album is still marked by new wave revivalism, but more Elvis Costello than the Strokes, and with a Lou Reed flavor distinctly of Cumming's lifelong Manhattan. Recorded at East Village Recording Center and Manhattan's Sullivan Street Studios, and produced by Johnny T. Yerington and Gus Osberg, it was released via Washington Square, an imprint of Razor & Tie, in June of 2015. ~ Marcy Donelson
