“‘Everything Breaks’ manages the uncommon trick of being both lovely and urgent…an elegiac litany of facts, descriptions, and/or circumstances, creating a kind of beauty-meets-tragedy atmosphere” — Fingertips Music
An exquisite sound full of breathy enthusiasm and a grandeur that’s really quite impressive. The Truth Is Like The Sun could be called the Sgt. Pepper of the indie set! — No Depression
“One of the more intriguing releases in quite some time…seamlessly stitches together dozens of different influences into a cohesive quilt of modern pop…not a bum track out of ten!”

“The 10-or-so-piece New York band pillages sophisticated ideas—from its ‘60s chamber-pop forebears, from the Brill Building songwriting factory, from classic French pop, and so on—and infuses its songs with a healthy dose of drama, romanticism and hope.” —New Haven Advocate
“Their music suggests they would feel just as comfortable in the concert hall as they would on college radio…a breath of fresh air in a music scene overcrowded with cookie cutter artistry.” —Silent Uproar
“Here Comes The Sharp Things is one of the jaw-droppingly wonderful pop albums of the year, bar none. I can’t name a favorite song on the album, because every song is equally mindblowing.” —Mundane Sounds
