Beats Per Minute

The jump from one record to the next is made even more revelatory by the English producer’s refinement and assuredness.

Pitchfork

Part of what makes Galaxy Garden unique, in a scene that's quickly become glutted, is its simultaneous sensitivity to particular old-school sonics and an interest in everything that's come after.

Drowned in Sound

At times it’s like being caught in a Honolulu crack epidemic, at others; the most accomplished retro project in years.

FACT Magazine

Galaxy Garden is ambitious, which is to be lauded, and Cutler also has a reassuringly realistic outlook when saying that he is still “chipping away at a big idea”.

Galaxy Garden suena como el Soundtrack de algún juego japones de carreras, esos que jugábamos en los fichines, con manubrio y todo.

Cutler doesn't add anything to make these sounds idiosyncratic to him. It's just average
