"Lost City Folk is a little bit chill (though a lot less than you might have expected), a lotta bit soul, a surprising amount of rock, and a hell of a lot of song. These are not dance tracks, but rather, concrete (ha!) pieces of music, most with verses and choruses, and even, perhaps, the odd middle eight. It will fit perfectly in your collection alongside those albums you surely must own by Lemon Jelly, Groove Armada and co."
“It is a wide ranging and eclectic album which deserves to be listened to as a whole to fully take in the range of atmospheres and to let the stories unfold. Musically the album is as rich and diverse as the city that inspired it.”
“A thought provoking, exquisite and quintessential soundtrack”.
“There’s something very warm about the album… It transports you to a place where gorgeous vocals meet with clever sample work and real live music”.
“I’ve listened to this album several times and I really like it, something about it just weaves into the fabric of your soul, I don’t know how, I don’t know why and I also don’t know how to put it into words”
"Lost City Folk (And The Grace Reunion) is een album dat als soundtrack van de zomer van 2009 niet zou misstaan. Enjoy!"
