See below for further acclaim for Revealer:
“The clear leader of her band of crack, Southern California musicians…she was also our audacious guide, steering us toward exploration with the shrewd parts she played on three different guitars over the course of four songs.”—NPR Music “Tiny Desk”
“[‘Our Rebellion’ is] a perpetual-motion weave of deftly picked guitar lines in a brisk 7/4 meter, stacking up and realigning, jabbing and easing off, sometimes running backward, as the crafty wrangling goes on.”—The New York Times
“She may draw you in with her guitar riffs—intricate, experimental and rhythmically dense. Perhaps it’s her voice, rich in country-rock earthiness yet expressive on a technical level. Maybe it’s the vividly painted character portraits that anchor her lyrics. What your entry point is, the California native expertly balances weirdness and warmth on her second LP, Revealer.”—Relix
“Revealer contains some of the most fearless guitar playing and tones you’ll hear today.”
“Not only is she a master of arranging inimitable indie rock gems, she’s an incredible guitar player, period.”—Consequence
