"The Baker Family's substantial lyrics meet a myriad of melodies and counter-melodies in Old Civilizations Put to the Sword, as Mr. and Mrs. Baker sing songs of excitement, loneliness, judgment, and hope."
-The Austin Chronicle
"Not many bands can pull off New Wave without piling on irony and pomp reminiscent of art-school majors...The contrast between Stuart’s ruminative lyrics and the sweet voice of keyboardist (and wife) Elizabeth Baker result in a sonic experience on par with Jeremy Enigk (post Sunny Day Real Estate) and Sufjan Stevens."
-Mountain Xpress, Asheville NC
