AllMusic Review by

Not unlike Low or Stars, Northampton, MA-based coed indie rockers Winterpills go down easy on this ten-song debut. From the outset, the warm allure of "A Benediction" counts frontman Philip Price as an Elliott Smith devotee, but the group sounds best when Price gets vocal accompaniment from Flora Reed, who gives the percolating, acoustic pop of "Laughing" and the breathy, stripped-down "Cranky" harmonic life. The hard-working "Threshing Machine" and the muted glimmer of "Want the Want" personify the band's depth, leaving this eponymous offering a prescription for indie fans looking to fill a void.
