"The point of lo-fi minimalism isn’t to play good music and sound bad doing it. In part, it forces you to pay closer attention to the song itself, noticing what’s there with extra appreciation. Stray Owls nails this, producing the jangling acoustic guitar and seething effects of postmodern noise-folk, all minus the skittering Animal Collective rhythms. If you ever wanted to hear the demos behind Grandaddy’s The Sophtware Slump, they likely sounded like this." —Corbie Hill (indyweek.com)
