“Taking its name from a 19th-century motivational speech that Temple kids know well, and swinging along to husky, early-20th-century folk and gospel tones, Philly sextet Acres of Diamonds seems the product of a bygone era.

It might not be fashionable, but that's not the point; when was the last time you heard music this honest? ”
“We’ve been listening to it all morning, and it’s a pretty gorgeous, brooding affair fans of Tindersticks, et. al will find lots to like here. It may not be Friday night music, but it’s definitely pretty awesome “I cannot wait for fall” music. ”
“Dreamy pop architects Acres of Diamonds...are dropping their first 7-inch and it's a moody, pretty slice of rock 'n' roll.”
