"Carol Bui has emerged as perhaps the most singular and distinct voice of the Washington, DC music scene," writes The Isthmus (Madison, WI). Her "new album sticks to the framework of dissonant guitars and thudding, almost hypnotic beats - combining old-school, D.C.-style postpunk with sonic elements that will be familiar to fans of Sonic Youth, June of 44, and Jeff Buckley."

From My Old Kentucky Blog:

" Thank you for Everyone Wore White (available Oct. 2 on 54ยบ40' or Fight!), a record that manages to be culturally unique and universal, beautiful and
harrowing, frequently within a single song.

" Thank you for the handwritten note, which accompanied the CD and pointed out that the nipples on the cover did not belong to you.

" Thank you for demonstrating that a female artist can make thought-provoking music and still kick out the jams.

" Thank you for the lyric about bundt cake."
