“There’s an admirable restraint in these tracks, a willingness to set off strong emotional content against the simplest, sparsest arrangements. Notes reverberate for a bit after they’re finished, so that you hear the note itself, and also its ghost and also the silence behind that ghost, in a powerful evocation of longing, loss and memory. Neighbors is the best kind of home-made music, intensely personal, deeply felt and well-played without being fussed over.”

Additionally, I did a live set/interview on the program Pipeline! on WMBR which you can listen to here… Thanks to Jeff Breeze for inviting me on the show!
A few more things:
Here is a nice short review from DFBM, which ranks Eight Constructions at 10/10 and says some very kind things.
