Tiny Mix Tapes

An album for your soul. How It Feels to Be Something On is more than just one of my favorite albums of all time; it is my heart, my mind, my emotions.

Pitchfork

In this season of fall, we sadly recognize that "Nothing gold can stay"; but listening to How It Feels to Be Something On reminds us that even our deepest losses are capable of bearing gold as well.

AllMusic

Taken on its own terms, How It Feels to Be Something On is a remarkable step forward from a band that seemed destined to leave its full potential untapped.
