REVIEWS

“THE MINIMALIST-NOISE-LISTEN TO WHAT YOU’RE DOING, DUDE, HERITAGE OF THE PAST COUPLE DECADES OF CHICAGO MUSIC MAKING IS MANIFEST IN THE SHEERING LAYERS OF DRUMS AND QUERULOUS LOW REEDS.”
BILL MEYER, STILL SINGLE

“WHEN I DIE IN THE DESERT AND THE BIRDS AND COYOTES ARE EATING MY ORGANS AND FLESH, THIS IS THE ALBUM I HOPE THEY’LL BE LISTENING TO.”
DAVID MENESTRES, ABSTRACTTRUTH

“WHAT A GREAT BIG UNHOLY SOUND!”
MAX MCCORMICK

“THESE CHICAGO MUSICIANS NOT ONLY MATCH HAUF’S AESTHETIC ORIENTATIONS, THEY LIGHT A FIRE UNDER HIS ASS.”
BILL MEYER

“NEXT DELUSION COULDN’T BE MORE OF OUR TIME.”
JESSE GOIN, CROW WITH NO MOUTH

“I’LL NEVER FORGET THE FEELING OF THE STORM’S CENTRAL EYE PASSING OVERHEAD; YOU CAN LOOK UP AND SEE THE STARS, BUT YOU DO SO WITH THE FULL KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU’RE SURROUNDED BY AN UNTHINKABLY IMMENSE PRESSURE. THIS RECORD CAN BE THOUGHT OF IN A SIMILAR WAY. THERE’S A LOT OF SPACE HERE, BUT IT’S NEVER EMPTY.”
DEREK STONE, FREEJAZZBLOG

“WHEN I TRY TO VISUALIZE THIS MUSIC, I SEE A HUGE ANIMAL THAT IS A BIT UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT ITS SIZE, BUT WITH A VERY SENSITIVE HEART. CHARMING!”
DOLF MULDER, VITAL WEEKLY
