Joost Kraaijenbrink’s whimsical indietronica sometimes blurs together, but it also contains numerous delights.
A rousing, strongly principled adventure story that I would’ve loved to read back in 5th grade (but I still enjoyed it as an adult).
Mary and the Witch’s Flower could easily be mistaken for a classic Studio Ghibli film, and that’s not a bad thing.

Some of the most challenging music of Low’s career, but also some of the most daring, intriguing, and rewarding.
The album’s blurred washes of ambience conjure a sense of growing dread — but there’s beauty to be heard, as well.
Nostalgia-laden pastoral post-rock, artistic post-hardcore, raging feminist post hardcore, and a cosmic horror soundtrack.
Old-School Christian Goth & Industrial: The Children of Power, Christian Image, and New Society (Review)

This album was a constant companion during a long period of heartbreak and doubt.
