AllMusic Review by

A beautifully orchestrated, two-song piece of wax brought on by legendary indie mainstay Jim O'Rourke. The High Llamas fuse arrangements of jazzy cocktail lounge to multilayered vocals (courtesy of Laetitia Sadler and Mary Hansen) and elements of dream pop. Featuring sophisticated pop ethics that easily recall Stereolab, both "Cookie Bay" and "Harmonium" flow pleasantly in an array of smooth synthesizers, beautiful harmonies, and suave "bachelor pad" swing elements.
