“Lurking around the Northwest music world for years playing with the likes of the Black Cat Orchestre, Earth, David Byrne, Terry Riley, Nirvana and a ton of other musicians, here we have Lori Goldstons' beautiful cello playing in its purest form - unaccompanied and acoustic. The pieces on this LP all carry a certain level of austerity and gravitas, though they never come off as cold. On the contrary, they are warm emotional pieces of music played by someone who really knows their way around the cello. Lori has dedicated her life to music and we at Mississippi Records are very proud to present this LP filled with her visionary compositions.”

“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.”
Artforum

“The addition of Lori Goldston’s cello — her stringed hum a nod to Carlson’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.“
Pitchfork [Earth]

“ …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]

Pitchfork

“Goldston wrenches astringent wails from her cello, while Davies trades her generally quiet thunder for a heavier foot and a relentless tide of cymbals.” Pitchfork

BBC

“[Goldston’s] plaintive playing gives the album a much more antique, maudlin sound than 2008’s The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull, and on Hell’s Winter augments an already potently heavyweight sound with impressive bottom-end depth. ” BBC
