CRITIC REVIEWS

Loud and Quiet
Indeed, Phantastic Ferniture ... here present a self-titled debut album that comes close to garage-rock perfection.
80
The Skinny
It may lack the richness and depth of her solo work, but that is replaced with absolutely towering riffs and Jurassic grooves.
75
The Line of Best Fit
The band’s self-titled debut doesn’t disappoint: it’s an upbeat peach of a record that has the potential to turn multiple frowns upside down.
75
The 405

Their new self-titled LP dashes through fields of warm riffs and detailed melodies, scooping up a bouquet of wildflowers whose imperfections only add to its beauty.

70
Northern Transmissions
The trio’s self-titled LP isn’t quite the rip-roarer that you might expect given our protagonist’s confession to create music to make people move, but what it is, is a record that shimmers and shakes with a refined joie de vivre.

God Is in the TV

The most impressive thing of all is Jacklin’s voice. It’s consistently stunningly.

65
Spectrum Culture

Over nine songs, the band straddles brash garage rock and pop subtleties, shedding the trappings of the members’ comparatively reined-in solo material.

AllMusic
Despite their contrasts, Phantastic Ferniture shares a certain retro spirit and thoughtfulness with Jacklin's work as a singer/songwriter, even though others are involved in the writing here, and even when it's trying not to think too much.

FLOOD Magazine
At their best, Phantastic Ferniture sound like a group of twenty-somethings who stumbled out of the bar to fearlessly play music together. But after listening to thirty-six minutes of the same brand of rock, tweaked ever so slightly from track to track, the charm starts to fade.

DIY

Julia’s vocals are still the centre-piece here but they take a more playful turn and, at nine songs long, the record serves as a short but promising introduction to a band still in their relative infancy.

Julia Jacklin side project. more Julia is a good thing, even if it's provided in marginal form.

Eu gosto bastante do trabalho solo da Julia Jacklin, e até pelo excelente single que eles lançaram (Fuckin' & Rollin) eu esperava BEM mais desse disco. Tem uma dinâmica legal de guitarras/contra-baixo, uma produção tbm que traz um som bem orgânico e vivo, e os vocais dela continuam mto bons. Mas acho que falta inspiração e criatividade nessas composições mesmo...todas meio parecidas, convencionais nas melodias e harmonias, ... read more

Absolutely phenomenal. I can’t say enough great things about this record, which stands up as one of my favorite Polyvinyl releases to date.

Julia Jacklin proved herself an excellent songwriter with her 2016 debut “Don’t Let The Kids Win,” but who knew she would work so well as a rockstar? "Phantastic Furniture" is the first installment of this Jacklin-led “supergroup,” and it’s short, sharp, and altogether highly satisfying. The music is generally comfort-food indie rock with a bit of a retro surf-pop twist, and while the louder volume may hold Jacklin back from achieving the lyrical ... read more
