CRITIC REVIEWS

The 405

This is an album that takes you through the natural and gradual movements of a long, sweltering summer day in a secluded green place that could be anywhere in or out of existence.

AllMusic

While Year clearly felt like a devastating reflection on loss and abandonment, Echoing Green is an album of rebirth, new possibilities, and optimism. There are still shades of lingering doubt and distant regret, but overall, it demonstrates a renewed sense of hope.

Pitchfork

The ambient noise artist Jefre Cantu-Ledesma moves towards shoegaze on his beautiful new record, which engenders a feeling of pure optimism.

Exclaim!

Overall, On the Echoing Green is still an interesting listen with many enjoyable aspects, but a stronger, tighter EP might've been made from the first five tracks — or a stronger LP with less distortion and noise in the back half.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Typically, Cantu-Ledesma has broadcasted from the more formless side of the void, his crashing drum loops and cascading waves of clipped synesthesia sounding almost like the memory of a memory. But with his latest, On The Echoing Green, Cantu-Ledesma has brought a newfound clarity to his work, carving distinct shapes of mellifluous guitar lines to impose against his towering sonic architecture.

I'm finding this more engaging and distinct than 'a year with 13 moons.' I might be in the minority, but so be it.
