“An unconventional and immediately memorable sound... this self-titled debut evokes indie rock greatness from beginning to end.”
“The new album by Wave Sleep Wave is simply R-A-D. If you get one album any time soon, this should be it.”
"Adler is an extraordinary songwriter... his casting of Lion as his only complement further accentuates his abilities as well as Lion's. The collaboration is a harmony of amazing feats and epic in proportion. Definitely one of my favorite albums of the entire year so far."
"Wave Sleep Wave manages to create deeply layered sonic masterpieces... There's a sweet subtlety in this band's music that rewards you with repeated listens... Definitely worth checking out."
"As far as trippy, tuneful unease goes, albums don't get much better than this."
"Not only unique in sound and composition... Wave Sleep Wave is fresh... yet another bold step for Adler."
“Wave Sleep Wave is anything but old. Their sound is a revelrous cavalcade... I’m deeply impressed. ”
“I personally found myself entranced by his delivery style... this kept me returning to the album on a regular basis... this album is worth investigating.”
“Adler is New York to the core: tough, urbane, full of self-effacing black humor. He's a master of understatement and ellipsis... the musical equivalent of The Sun Also Rises for a new generation.”
“Continuing the narrative that traces a path from Woody Guthrie through modern artists such as The Felice Brothers, Flugente is a testament to just how far American acoustic music has come as we enter the second decade of the 21st century.”
“Whatever their 'thing' is — best described as a lovable mesh of pop, punk and indie — or is not, one thing's for sure. It's incredible.”
"Packs enough rock and roll punch and brilliant lyricism to make me foam at the mouth for more. With strikingly original guitar riffs and multi-layered production, The Blam have concocted a formula that leaves me hard-pressed to make comparisons."
“It's quite a skill, being odd… But to remain as oddly off-centre as The Blam takes some doing… The Blam require patience before their melodies sneak inside your skull, but when they do they unleash a promisingly slanted noise. ”
“Whatever "revival" the hype machine might lump this NYC band into, let it be set down now that they are legit. ”
