Spin (p.106) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Landes' voice is buttery and melodic....Her New York-by-way-of-Kentucky pluck is a refreshing antidote to schmaltzy neo-folk."
Uncut (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Landes propels the whole project skyward with a voice that encapsulates the best qualities of Laura Veirs and Cat Power. It's pretty much essential stuff."
Q (Magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[U]nderstated and beautiful, her soft voice lilting over acoustic guitar, banjo and little else on warm-hearted ballads..."
Paste (magazine) (p.56) - "Landes writes her best songs from the seat of the aimless dreamer and paints her surroundings with an inviting haze of solace."
The Word (magazine) (p.101) - "It makes for a lovingly crafted, beautifully textured record that splices together folk, country and indie without contradiction. And there are plenty of surprises along the way..."
Folksy and twee, Dawn Landes plays bluegrass-inflected indie-pop with a country twang and a wink. This 2007 album was recorded in a week at Adam "Red" Lasus's legendary Fireproof studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and the album is an aural stand-in for the Brooklyn neighborhood: charming, low-key, semi-obscure, with a similar diamond : rough ratio.
