REVIEWS:

” The album of the year. . . . Mother’s Daughter and Other Songs is so fractured and tries to marry folk song writing, traditional acoustic instrumentation and digital glitch production techniques in a way that is so vulnerable that perfection is achieved”
Tim Ritchie, ABC Radio National, Sound Quality

. . . a stunning collection of infectious and beautiful songs. Mixing acoustic instruments and electronic sounds, the album drifts along like a hazy summers day, each song gently fading into the next, as the songs weave their magic around the listener.
. . . the blend is perfect, each song a complete and satisfying experience.

Simon Lewis, Ptolemaic Terrascope, May 2005

. . . one of the year’s finest releases so far. Otherworldly and enchanting, the hastily applied ‘folktronica’ tag doesn’t do justice to the dark beauty of Mother’s Daughter, which bridges the gap between traditional folk and ambient soundscapes.
. . . Revealing new treasures with each listen, this is a densely layered record and a potent amalgam of styles, old and new.
. . . There really is no excuse for not owning this.

Simon Harper (5 stars) Birmingham Post, 11th April 2005
