  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This duo's third release showcases skittering electronics framed by grounded, dynamic percussion..."
    Q (p.119) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]ruising instrumental soundscapes....The pair are so full of ideas, there's scarcely a dull moment."
    The Wire (p.65) - "Hebden's multiple sampling uses a wide range of departure points, including 'Greensleeves', the song appropriated by John Coltrane, which gets a hauntingly fragmented interpretation here."
    CMJ (p.6) - "TONGUES finds the duo experimenting with clangy sounds and Reid's expressive drumming, like if Ornette Coleman re-imagined Kraftwerk."
    JazzTimes (p.97) - "[T]his set is a virtual Tomorrowland of sound....Hebden's sampler lines reverberate like crashing metal waves..."
    Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.44) - "Reid lays down beats while Hebden piles on bips, blaps, buzzes and beeps. The focus is on texture..."
