"There are echoes of earlier bands, with songs that brings to mind Smith Westerns, Beach House, the Strokes, or Wilco... arranged around Kempner’s unique whisper of a voice and way of seeing the world that draws out the moodiness. This undercurrent distinguishes the project, and makes Kempner worth following." - Pitchfork

“The 2015 album “Dry Food” marked Ellen Kempner as a bright new talent to watch, with a winning combination of quick guitar instincts and languorous vocals. The group’s latest release, “A Place I’ll Always Go,” is even better.” - New York Times

“scrappy and buzzy guitar rock, bolstered by Kempner's dexterous riffs … also offers some darker, nuanced shades that evoke the album's themes." - NPR

“A Dazed-Sounding Tribute To The Magic Of Queer Love” - The Fader

“Her songs tend to pack the punch of dark personal experience and observations while still sounding bubbly; they often go down like jello shots.” - New York Magazine’s “Vulture”
