Badge Époque Ensemble's Self Help is a mystifying journey to a safe space of tranquility – an overwhelming sense of comfort that can be felt through the band's exploration of different textures and structures.

Pitchfork
Alongside a roster of guest vocalists including Jennifer Castle and Meg Remy, the psychedelic Toronto outfit allows their exploratory and pop-focused impulses to work in tandem.

Northern Transmissions

As a collection of jazzy funk tunes, Self-Help is, at its core, an enjoyable listen with substantial replay value. It might sometimes stray into ruminative obscurity, but its self-contained mulling is far from fatal.
