(3.5 stars) "The third LP from New York's Candles delivers rootsy catharsis with detail and texture most 'Americana' bands can't touch, full of subtle craftsmanship . . . Time and again, the Candles show why their 'dusty highway line' is a well-traveled path to salvation."
"The past few years have been a resurgence of experimental sounds, avant-garde fusions all lead by powerful female voices. BANKS and FKA Twigs are first that come to mind, with LA-based Zealyn coming closely behind. The subtle aggressive tone leaves an empowering aftertaste."
