“Goldston’s music constituted a kind of physical enactment of listening. She began in silence — absorbing the moment and the film — and then her sound emerged, shifting and responding to what she took in.”
“The addition of Lori Goldston’s cello — her stringed hum a nod to Carson’s drone-metal past — is the defining factor, bringing depth, substance and emotion to an already rich mix, particularly on the chilling and beautiful Father Midnight. This is Earth’s best-realised work to date — stunning stuff.”
The Guardian [Earth]
“On the brilliantly winding Descent to the Zenith, for instance, Goldston plays against [Carlson] ever so gently, pushing against his pull, emphasizing the way his lines keep chasing their own tails. Moore's organ used to make Carlson's ideas sound bigger; here, by contrast, Goldston makes them sound smarter.“
“ …Lori Goldston’s cello welling up in mournful counterpoint, like Cobain’s alter ego, on the last word of the lyric ‘I think I’m dumb / Maybe just happy.’ ”
Rolling Stone [Nirvana]
