Bardo Pond Presents: Sublimation (three lobed recordings, 2006)
Presentando los proyectos alternos de la banda: Dechemis, 500mg y Takeda.
"Both Bardo Pond and Three Lobed Recordings wanted to do something special to commemorate the sixth Terrastock Festival in 2006. After some thought, we decided to display the band's various talents and "sublimation" is the result. This disc features brand new material from Bardo Pond (the seventeen minute long "dual states"), 500mg (the sixteen minute "descent"), Clint Takeda (twenty solid minutes of "hope street") and Dechemia (John Gibbons and Isobel Sollenberger offering the four minute "velum"). yep, right at an hour's worth of new Bardo (and related) goodness."

Mark Korven. The Witch OST (milan, 2016)
"One of the most haunting and mesmerizing scores in recent memory. It dispenses with both classic orchestration and the retro-revival minimalist synth pulses that the reissue vinyl market is clamoring for."

Wyrdstone. Cuffern (reverb worship, 2009)
"'Cuffern' is a thing of wonder and beauty indeed, an accomplished and bewitching instrumental guitar opus that recalled such luminaries as Jansch, Martyn and Fahey" Grey Malkin

Caldera Lakes. Can't See the Forest for The Trees (blackest rainbow, 2008)
"Probably the best album I heard on my trip today, no album adorns the urban decay of Newark like these screams and blasts of noise. There are several abandoned buildings along the water, and the train, which is mostly silent, traces them quite slowly. It is quite strange to think about these enormous, once beautiful (perhaps still) buildings on the first day people entered them. Most are build brick by brick, and most of the damage has been done to the windows and with spraypaint. I’m sure most of what is left is the brick, although that will go someday. Obviously people think of big storms, earthquakes and the like as the big things with weather, yet it is countless little shifts and forces that destroy mans simple projects. This record, this morning, gave aural illustration to these forces, a way to put into context how young and fragile these towering piles of bricks are. If you have a chance, drive through Newark, St. Louis, and so on. Think about every little brick being stacked by a person, and the lifespan of it if left to the elements. Somehow, this album made me ponderous, and that puts it above most everything else I’ve listened to this week." Blackest Rainbow
