Praise for Nootropics

“Richly detailed, dark, and ethereal, the album is a feast for sound-first listeners drawn to expressive shifts in color and tone.” ­– 8.2/10 Pitchfork

“Sometimes trance-inducing, sometimes wildly dynamic, the album is a sumptuous, woozy feast that proudly dances on the lines between nirvana and reality.” – 8/10 Spin

“It’s an ambitious mission statement to go along with a richer sound.” – NPR
