In a truly dauntless move, he name drops the album in the final couplet, a most satisfying conclusion to an impressive and expansive album—a different side of a very talented artist.

GIGsoup

On his solo debut Parquet Courts frontman Andrew Savage delivers some of the deepest, most nuanced songwriting of his career so far.

Under The Radar

Somehow there's often a certain low-profile feel to solo albums from frontmen of notable bands, but this one should be touted. A record to champion both focus and randomness.

Pitchfork

The debut solo LP from Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts finds him singing more intimately about love in quieter, more rustic settings. In its own peculiar way, it speaks to our current condition.

Exclaim!

Sticking to convention is hardly a deadly sin, especially in traditional genres, but Savage doesn't distinguish himself quite enough to make Thawing Dawn essential listening.
