CRITIC REVIEWS

83
A.V. Club

The songs simultaneously document Bundick’s emerging, eclectic songwriting sensibilities and his almost-there engineering ambitions.

musicOMH

Problematically, there’s the paradox that whilst proceedings are worthy, they’re too anaemic for wider public consumption

60
The 405

While these kinds of collections lie almost outside of the scope of review, it should be noted that they are infinitely more interesting for existing fans.

60
Pitchfork

There's no getting around the fact that June 2009 acquires most of its value, if not all of it, in context with Causers of This and Underneath the Pine. 

60
Under The Radar

With 10 tracks clocking in at a shade under a half hour, the album is aimed squarely at preexisting fans curious to see the band's progression

50
Consequence of Sound

This isn’t something to win over new fans, but to give background and deep-cuts to hardcore appreciators and completists.

40
Drowned in Sound

All we’re presented with here is a collection of half-baked, badly-produced versions of sounds we heard a couple of years ago; what was supposed to be low-fi AM pop instead sounds like a crap Ariel Pink record.
