Pitchfork reviews Lullaby Baxter

The almighty Pitchfork has reviewed Garden Cities of To-morrow and they quite liked it! Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

“Baxter’s jazzy alto carries echoes of singers like Ella Fitzgerald … standout “Sugar” opens with pulsing “I Am the Walrus” Mellotron before dissolving in country-rock lead guitar licks, delirious strings, whirling Wurlitzer, and ostinato bass line. A flute quartet, harp, timpani, marimba, and even djembe dress up other tracks in full Herculean garb, with Ennio Morricone’s flair for the cinematic … when Baxter matches her urbane oddities and Hercules’ pastoral popscaping just right, it’s like a stroll through leafy, tree-lined city blocks in early autumn twilight … a masterwork of urban planning for a city out of an enchanted kingdom.”

In conjunction with the Pitchfork review, AmpCamp was good enough to add the album to their incredible online shop and they also had very kind things to say about the album!
