CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

It’s an album wrought with nostalgia, fuzzy-tape hiss, and unbelievable musicianship that any fan of Koster will surely eat right up.

78
Beats Per Minute

With songs that unspool in unexpected ways and feel centuries old in spirit, he has finally given us something that matches in execution what he’s been repeatedly trying to show us through his boundless imagination for the past decade

71
Pitchfork

A song or two here and there might falter a bit, but taken as a whole, Mary's Voice is a minor triumph.

60
Consequence of Sound

It frequently sounds as though it’s being sung in his own secret language, making it hard for the listener to glean his secrets.
