"With one album, Sholi have done what a lot of bands take a whole discography to do"
"gives a sense of place and timelessness that's been sucked out of most modern records ... every tune teems with ideas and moments of brilliance"
"in between the mania and ethereality, the music's greatest accomplishment is its only constant: simple, striking scalar melodies that whether buried under fuzz bass or acoustic arpeggios, make each track breathtaking"
"Attention-getting musicianship, with a drummer that knows when to hold back and when to unleash a busy, all-encompassing percussive racket, a strong and versatile singer in guitarist Payam Bavafa, and overall, the taste to discern what to do and when...indie rock truisms, a la the Walkmen, and a traditional side to handle the ethnic material like Morricone might have, with a lot of instrumental flash and a noble, heads-up presence." -DUSTED
