Alternative Press, Volume 8, Number 71 [Jun 1994]

Review of Thurtene - a tribute to 4AD, p. 81

"...Forget the tribute aspect, then, and just enjoy - This Mortal Coil volume four? The overdone Pixies/Breeders aside, there's no doubting the quality of the songs, and the performers..."
- Dave Thompson

Dewdrops, Issue #12 [Sum 1994]

Review of Teaching The Evil Robot How To Love by the Gosh Guys, p. 10

"...The Gosh Guys are a group of guys that write amateurish songs about the most offbeat topics imaginable...this tape has some good songs and some real surprises in terms of lyrics. Songs about stir-frying one's pancreas, bleeding all over yourself, a sperm bar, a girl with a funny shaped head, trying a juice extractor on some corpses, and love making you puke. They've got guts selling this stuff..."
- Brant Nelson

Drawer B [Sep 27 1998]

Review of Epoch by Limeboy

"Release #23 on Tennessee's Gleet & Gumma records, Limeboy serve up quirky synth/indie pop with more than a subtle nod to Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields. The lyrics range from the absurd to the heart wrenching and eventually gut wrenching...Overall, this is an interesting release that seems to meld occasionally Merritt-esque lyrics and stripped down synth pop instrumentation with the quirky experimentation and slanted pop culture references of early They Might be Giants. An unlikely combination, yet somehow they pull it off."
- Circle K

Drawer B [Mar 1999]

Review of Nameless by Love, Execution Style

"Tennessee's Love, Execution Style is back with a new album chock full of their brand of genre hopping sounds. Nameless is apparently the by-product of an experiment in which the band attempted to write and record a song a day for a month. A daunting task for any band, but a great excuse for LES to push their creativity to its limits...Love, Execution Style skillfully weave random styles and genres together to create a sound that is completely their own, in a manner similar to Beck or Cornelius. Flirting with that fine line between pastiche and pop brilliance, the band manages to pull it off more often than not..."

Spin, Volume 15, Number 8 [August 1999]

Article mentioning Love, Execution Style, p. 163

"...[Love, Execution Style's] charming CD Nameless...switches off between pathologically shy click-and-drag-and-strum tunes that owe a lot to Merritt, messy little noise pieces, and rough approximations of spy movie wah-wah soundtracking.  It's also got some of the songs-for-hire, including a mod instrumental theme for an Internet service provider and a lullaby that turns into a boppy sing-along about one patron and his baby.  The band may never see the inside of a real studio, but they're going straight to heaven."
- Douglas Wolk
