Grace Potter - Midnight

"What’s most intriguing on this album, though, is how Ms. Potter willingly and somewhat brazenly submits to the whole. Often, like on 'Low' and 'The Miner', she’s obscured by design — not outlandishly so, but just enough that her voice is denied its full punch. It’s an effective choice, even if not a totally natural one. Which is why it’s reassuring to hear, at the album’s conclusion, 'Let You Go', a rough ballad about loss that Ms. Potter is given free rein on — or rather, one in which she takes the reins, a solo artist in full control." - Joe Caramanica, New York Times

Teen Daze - Morning World

"Following a number of turbulent life changes, Jamison traveled down to San Francisco to work with John Vanderslice, who helps imbue Morning World with indie rock's warm, analog glow. It sounds almost nothing like previous Teen Daze material. Only Jamison's fluttery songwriting remains, and the new style puts his pleasant idiosyncrasies into sharper focus. Instead of pirouetting synths and daydream melodies, Jamison's singing is the center point of Morning World...More importantly, he sounds like himself more than ever—which makes Morning World Jamison's most captivating and personal album yet." - Andrew Ryce, Pitchfork
