CHICAGO TRIBUNE: AMy Beth Kirsten's Savior with Chicago Symphony 

"Hardly less mesmerizing were the three Joans — sopranos Molly Netter and Eliza Bagg, and mezzo Hai-Ting Chinn — accomplished singing actors whose ecstatic a cappella trio in the ninth section, “Fire,” sung in French, was hauntingly beautiful and dramatically powerful."

PITCHFORK: Young Narrator in the breakers Album Review

"Young Narrator in the Breakers sounds like a ’70s soft-rock dispatch from what people in the mid-20th century thought the future would be like: jetpacks, Mars landings, and dehydrated Thanksgiving dinners. Their music embraces space-age retro-futurism, but with some gentle touches from the last 10 years of indie rock [...] Bagg's haunting vocals [appear] in a whisper of a ballad, like a lovelorn alien reaching out from the farthest reaches of the galaxy."

NYTIMES: "REVIEW: 'The Colorado,' A Music-Driven Eco-Documentary"

"In this 90-minute documentary, the music — commissioned from five composers and performed by some of the most innovative soundsmiths around — is specifically tailored to the film’s passionate environmental advocacy and carries equal weight with the visual."

NYTIMES: "Review: John Zorn’s Spirit of Restless Invention Flows Forth"

"Music and masonry proved an evocative blend. “The Holy Visions” (2012), a radiant mystery play that reflects obliquely on the 12th-century composer and mystic Hildegard von Bingen, best suited the space. Sung brilliantly by Jane Sheldon, Eliza Bagg, Sarah Brailey, Rachel Calloway and Kirsten Sollek, Mr. Zorn’s original Latin text and his propulsive, occasionally abstruse music related to each other only enigmatically." - David Allen, The New York Times (June 5, 2015)

STEREOGUM: "Ran Ran Ran: Stereogum Premiere"

"Pavo Pavo make weightless pop music that sounds like it was beamed down from a glimmering utopian future [...] A-side “Ran Ran Run” positively glows, moving from psychedelic orchestral stateliness to punchy hand-clap pop without missing a beat, with synths, piano, and shimmering Grizzly Bear-esque vocal harmonies flitting in and out at will. This is a supremely confident first statement, a great introduction that only promises more good things to come." - Peter Helman, Stereogum (May 4, 2015) 

 

NYTIMES: "Friday Night Music: Pavo PAvo"

"It was great to be part of the audience, most of whom, like me, didn’t know the band at all; little by little everyone began to realize that we were experiencing something special, that these very young musicians definitely have the magic." - Paul Krugman, The New York Times (June 19, 2015)
