Northern Transmissions

Though it can be soothing enough to get you too comfortable, it’s an intoxicating listen to say the least.

Exclaim!

Still Run shows signs of growth in some areas, but in others, leaves much left to be desired.

Dork

Wet fit into the 90s R&B, alternative and lo-fi dream pop categories without remaining in any of them.

The Brooklyn band may have lost a member, but they have not lost their sound. 'Still Run' is their most consistent, but least captivating release yet.

Despite its starpower and self-generated hype, Still Run ends up being something about as adventurous—and nourishing—as a plate of buttered noodles.
