Drowned in Sound
It is clear that Wolfe has a set of wide and disparate influences, and it can be bewildering for a listener to be confronted with such divergent approaches. Yet on this brief set of songs her ideas form a single vision that bodes well for her next LP.
Tiny Mix Tapes

At barely more than 10 minutes, A Prayer for the Unborn is a brisk but surprisingly meaty set. In that brief expanse of time, Wolfe distills many of the most enticing features of Apokalypsis while sinking her roots still deeper into folk’s blood-drenched soil.


Chelsea's tribute EP to Rudimentary Peni, previously recorded more acoustically and released for free as "A Tribute to Rudimentary Peni" here re-worked with her full band and released in 2013 via Southern Records.
