A.V. Club

In the eight songs that compose the record, there’s not a second that feels extraneous, making for 28 minutes of uncompromising and effortless genre-bending. It’s a stunning record, apparently for all parties involved.

Exclaim!

Much like Solange's A Seat at the Table, Infinite Worlds offers several platforms for Tamko to navigate blackness, personhood, love and safe spaces on her own terms.

Pitchfork

Guided by a more mature sound, Infinite Worlds is the rock music we need nowadays, when it seems like home, wherever it might be, is getting farther away.

DIY

‘Infinite Worlds’ is a jumble of fuzz-wrapped postcards and remembered snapshots.

The 405

Infinite Worlds is accomplished and stirring, but it’s also sprinkled with surprise intimacies, distinguishing it as one of the most remarkable and challenging releases so far this year.

AllMusic

Infinite Worlds is an inward-looking album, perfect for soundtracking quiet evenings spent pondering life choices and wondering what it all means. Tamko sounds like she's done plenty of each and that comes through clearly in her vocals, the expansive nature of her melodies, and the overall restless and questing spirit of the album.

At its best center, Infinite Worlds gives the song back to the person. Despair is stationary: at our best, we move.

A considerably charming and charismatic work by the melancholic young artist Laetitia Tamko, now using everything in her power - from guitars, bass and drums rock-combo to electronic setups and beyond, to create a set of reflective songs that hold the same kind of confused and introspective detours of artists like Courtney Barnett and Hop Along, but slightly escaping this scenario and building one of her own, even if that place is located at the very epicenter to where many indie names converge ... read more

"Try say somethin’ new, it ain’t nothin’ new to say
Everythin’ been did, each and every which way

You ain’t never, you ain’t never seen it done like this" - Ab-Soul, Braille, 2016.

This album is not doing much for me. I do get the appeal of this album, but the album's appeal does not translate to me. For me, these are some boring, boring, BORING indie rock tracks with little to no ... read more

This album is filled with soft vocals in rough noise, balanced to perfection. Every song is a new adventure, that carries out the similar idea of an infinite world(s). This album will most likely go up in rating soon, upon first listen there is nothing lacking in the creative experience, continually making me want to come back for more.

Fav Tracks: The Embers, Mal a L'aise, 100 Years, Cleaning House

This is one of the albums where it needs to be longer, because it is so amazing. The vocals are nice, the instrumentals are enjoyable, I would put this album on my year-end list. Well done.
