"Elegantly crafted, intricately counterpointed and interlocking music, with no dilution of Gordon's seductive blend of experimental outlook and dancefloor appeal" - The Wire
"A striking and elaborate statement" - Red Bull Music Academy
"The ensemble splices together passages of jazz, rock, pop, classical and any number of other influences, and shapes a stream of ideas that gives the impression of the unconventional, but comes off as almost logical as they serve up one unexpected turn after the other. Music as fun as it is intelligent" - Bird Is The Worm
