"Basically, this album takes a very pretty foundation and runs its fingernails down the blackboard here and there, or spins you round on a roundabout too fast and then asks you to walk down a flight of stairs."
- Song, by Toad
"Maybe it’s the low-key and warming and intimate recording, maybe it’s the pair’s sometimes soothing, sometimes defiant, sometimes fluttery vocal harmonies, or maybe still it’s the understated yet striking delivery …
Whatever it is, this duo does it quite well.”
-Wave Maker Magazine
…AND A DRUM ROLL FOR OUR FAVORITE, in that it engenders lotsa FB hype:
"…And that may be the biggest criticism of Companion, and a criticism of the antifolk movement in general, which is that they try too hard to achieve dissonance, to tweak their voices, to grate or irritate. These women have lots of talent that in another setting would shine, maybe away from the folk world and trying more Norah Jones type stuff, or even Alanis Morrissette- Companion is for the niche market indeed.”
