“The song’s story plays out like a one-sided conversation, with Ludwig imagining what she would say to her ex-lover if they were with her: “I miss you all the time, especially on these long drives,” she sings. The washed-out wistfulness diminishes the rage Ludwig says she felt, with only traces of her anger flashing through.” – Paste Magazine

Nov. 16/17 – The Line Of Best Fit has released their latest Oh! Canada (29!) compilation. Lots of great new Canadian music to check out on here, including songs from our wonderful Oscar St. Records fam Cascade Falls and Peach Pyramid! Thanks to Ro at The Line of Best Fit!
Peach Pyramid – ‘Polarized’: “Channelling UK Jangle Pop and adding in some BC sunshine.” – The Line Of Best Fit
Cascade Falls – ‘Eyes Might Wander’: “While the spoken intro suggests some urgency, the hazy piano-led ‘Eyes Might Wander’ is a sprawling, evolving thing of beauty, Miller’s gentle croon calling to mind the cosmic balladeering of early Midlake or John Grant.” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Juxtaposed with her heartfelt discussions of life and love are breezy, elegant melodies and reverb-soaked, swirling guitars, replete with hazy harmonies. Severtson’s voice is flawless when skipping between pitches on tracks like “We Glide/She Sighs” and manages to slip between dreamily ethereal and aggressively powerful on album standout “My Collapse”. Add to that a selection of pop hooks that Feist would give her right arm for, and you’ve got a record that’s designed to calm and enthrall as much as reveal Severtson’s deepest thoughts.” – The Georgia Straight
