This album runs the gamut from the instrumental guitar freak-out of "I Could Really See Things" to the melodic pop perfection of "Vision Television. With only six songs on the record, each song except for the 19-second "Intro" have room to breathe and expand. The sound of the lead guitarist Kryssi Battalene's guitar is pure sonic bliss, and the rest of the band ably holds down the rhythm. kevcor73
Bass is the lead instrument on this record, overdriven, compressed, and strummed like a guitar. Wind instruments like sax and flute play prominent roles, and the percussion has a sparse, krautrock-y minimalism. Running throughout all this is a lo-fi, homemade aesthetic which suits it very well.

With their blend of playfulness and graduate-level instrumentation, Dorcha deftly prove that improvisational zeal and conservatory-level precision aren't mutually exclusive. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 16, 2020
