James Champion The end of Silent Movie Reel makes me shiver. I've never heard anything like it. Like all of Breathe Owl Breathe's music, these songs inspire in me a sort of wanderlust and thirst for adventure that I've never felt before. This album is truly a gift. Favorite track: Silent Movie Reel.

Jeremy / HI54LOFI It's like a slightly more ‘sing-y’ Bill Callahan album. Favorite track: Cliff Ledge.

Tito Rocha Beautiful record. Some more serious tones and themes in this album, even melancholy at times. Breathe Owl Breathe always seem to strike some interesting emotions out of me, and this record is no exception of that. Favorite track: Two Moths.
