“Lower Reaches reminds us that whether the idiom is Badfinger-esque powerpop (I Hate Myself For Loving You), or spry Dillard & Clark-like country (On My Conscience), Currie’s graceful melodies and info-laden beauty and/or bile-buoyed couplets are up to the job” **** Mojo
“A rich atmosphere of Americana…..dallying on the outskirts of John Grant pop grandeur” Uncut
