CRITIC REVIEWS

God Is in the TV

It may only be March, but Sister already looks like one of the most accomplished indie records of 2020.

AllMusic

Consistently hypnotic, yet rich with sneaky melodic shifts, Sister's rich sonic architecture, which includes Bettinson's anodyne vocals and stream of consciousness wordsmithing, is its greatest selling point.

Pitchfork
The second album from producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker, and singer Laura Bettinson is immaculately composed electronica that never really leaves a strong impression.

Loud and Quiet

On the one hand, this is dazzling to encounter – the entire album gleams sonically, every edit feeling super gourmet with nary a hair out of place – but on the other, such airtight cleanliness leaves Sister frustratingly gutless; a masterclass in studio production technique in desperate need of songwriting calibre to match.

Way more impressive than I was originally expecting after their great, but standard debut. Lots of interesting and complicated rhythms, syncopation, and chord changes that lead for a rewarding listen. Great sophomore album.

Sister disappointingly does not live up to the admittedly high standards set by Ultraísta's debut album. The production feels cheaper and the lyrics aren't as strong.

slick and atmospheric. unfortunately, it can feel kinda same-y. still, worth a listen and might grow on me with another listen
