AllMusic Review by

Former Swans and Skin vocalist Jarboe's intense vocal rituals take on a new project somewhat lighter in approach to the devastating thralls of her former group, teaming up with New York multi-instrumentalist Lary Seven on electronics, percussion, and mixed acoustic instrumentation. The pair developed a sophisticated minimalist pop with a dose of exotica and dark humor that will appeal to fans of Bongwater, Sonic Youth, and the like. An excellent release from the New York postmodern pop scene; another Swans-related project that cannot be recommended highly enough.
