CRITIC REVIEWS

Tiny Mix Tapes

Raime is at the forefront of a project concerned with exemplifying an appreciation for the musical ancestry they have inherited, and their determination to connect the dots through re-imagining a specific set of aesthetics is unparalleled.

Beats Per Minute

With Quarter Turns Over A Living Line Raime fleshes out the promise of earlier work and delivers one 2012's most compelling and listenable experimental records.

FACT Magazine

Quarter Turns Over A Living Line is therefore an album that is both powerful in its execution of an idea, but also quite sure of its own modest signature.

Pitchfork

The seven tracks here have the cold ripple of alienation and abandon pulsing through them.

I legitimately listen to this thing all the time.

The first act of the album is what initially struck me, but the album, into the 2nd act, pursues a break beat, dub quality to itself which kind of damps the project a bit for me. Still some solid work by Raime and manages to capture that dark, absent void and put it into a physical form.

A dark and haunting experience that sounds as if it came directly from a deep abyss. The first part is absolutely stunning, and even though the second half is a bit less striking and cohesive, this record turned out to be quite the frightening ride.
