CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
Subtle, transcendental with gentle rock beats and new music influences in patternings and textures.

Pitchfork
On these tracks, Russell creates beatless dance music that travels through outer space, making the journey his destination.

This album sounds like it came from a man who's spent the last 1,000 years in a really vast, dark room that's suspended far away in space.

Favorite Tracks: Soon-to-be Innocent Fun/Let's See, Let's Go Swimming, Our Last Night Together, The Name of the Next Song, Answers Me
