AllMusic Review by

A gorgeously amazing art-rock/emo trio from the ever-productive state of Philadelphia with a sound that penetrates in a way that many attempt and fail to accomplish. With vocals reminiscent of Karate and intricate song structures that soothe on impact, this is one up-and-coming band that should not be missed. The first track, "This Process will make Chicago wave its little hand," starts off with beautiful harmonics, evolving into a driving beat covered over with complex discordant guitar work and spoken word vocals. The flip side, "Detunist," moves slowly into a beautiful feeling that lingers even after listening. Overall, an amazing first effort that leaves you thirsting for more.
