Movement feels like a progression and challenge from one of the year's most exciting new voices, producers, and composers.

The 405

Blurring the lines between nature and machine, intellect and primailty, life and death, and noise and melody, Movement ends up being a superb album. 

Consequence of Sound

Futuristic and still visceral, even sexual, Movement‘s strength gleans itself from the subtleties.


Herndon really puts herself through the digital ringer on Movement, and entrusts her voice to the machine.  In doing so, she’s achieved a beautiful and harrowing symbiosis worth listening to again and again.

Beats Per Minute

Though academic in its tone, and impenetrable at points due to it’s uncompromising focus on experimentation, Movement looks inward, probing the possibility of humanity even through an album centered on electronic instrumentation.

( ☆☆☆ ) nice concept, a bit irregular/boring at times.
