Uncut (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]here's a quirky, haunted quality to the songs....[T]he effect is of floating dazedly above worldly matters, like a figure in a Chagall painting."Magnet (p.67) - Ranked #18 in Magnet's "The 20 Best Albums Of 2004" - "ESCONDIDA delivers the goods with the wilted-orchid whisper of Billie Holiday."CMJ (p.6) - "ESCONDIDA is a reminder that Americana isn't about patriotism, it's about the twisted roots of blues, jazz and country growing into something strange and beautiful."Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 4 stars out of 5 - "It really is incredibly good....A contemporary of Billie Holiday this time around rather than a disciple of Will Oldham."Paste (magazine) - "Literate, spooky and utterly compelling, ESCONDIDA is not only an astonishing album, but the announcement of a singular, visionary talent."143.8381

Uncut (2/04, p.71) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[L]ike a field recording, full of hiss and crackle as she sings her spooky fairy tales over an acoustic guitar, accompanied occasionally by a muted banjo and meandering harmonica."Magnet (2/04, pp.98-9) - "[I]t's pretty, haunting and pulsing with life..."Mojo (Publisher) (2/04, p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[I]t wields an oddly compelling spell."143.8381

Rolling Stone (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Holland's voice is a thing of wonder -- languorous but with a sweetness that makes even the saddest sentiments comforting."Spin (p.84) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With cockeyed portraits of bruised romance, she sustains deep suspense thanks to languid enunciations of every stretched vowel."Entertainment Weekly (p.83) - "[H]er band breathes along like a ventilator with brushed drums, pump organ, lap steel and horns. Proof folk music shouldn't just conjure the past."No Depression (p.135) - "[T]he country-tinged "Moonshiner' is shot through with bittersweet slide guitar. The title track, despite its fatal implications, is a light and lively jazz tune, propelled by flittering cymbals, quick strums, and an air of barely suppressed agitation."Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]he always offsets hillbilly hangdog victimhood with a raised eyebrow of humour or some strangely uplifting musical moment."115.0705
