When I Call 04:11


"This is dark of the blackest of physics, an endless ebb into nothing."

"Talent to appeal far more than only folk fans alone"
Record Collector

"There is much to savour on this accomplished collection of plaintive laments, of which the mournful title track and drone like Uyeasound are exceptional."
Q Magazine

"There’s a big hearted muscularity to these songs that makes you return to them like good drinking buddies." Word Magazine
