Tiny Mix Tapes

Raime is at the forefront of a project concerned with exemplifying an appreciation for the musical ancestry they have inherited, and their determination to connect the dots through re-imagining a specific set of aesthetics is unparalleled.

FACT Magazine

Quarter Turns Over A Living Line is therefore an album that is both powerful in its execution of an idea, but also quite sure of its own modest signature.

Pitchfork

The seven tracks here have the cold ripple of alienation and abandon pulsing through them.

A dark and haunting experience that sounds as if it came directly from a deep abyss. The first part is absolutely stunning, and even though the second half is a bit less striking and cohesive, this record turned out to be quite the frightening ride.
