PITCHFORK :: "Ola Podrida is a cohesive, confident album full of folky, quiet guitars and thoughtful lyrics that coalesce into complete songs" (Rating - 8.0)
STYLUS MAGAZINE ::"Ola Podrida isn't just a strikingly accomplished debut - it's near-essential listening for anyone who's been taken with the recent turn in some parts of the indie cosmology towards folkier and more countrified sounds."
SPIN.COM - ARTIST OF THE DAY :: "Instruments layer together subtly and deftly, creating an atmosphere that brings to mind the wide Western plains or old, not-quite-forgotten lovers."
NPR, Song of the Day - "Jordanna" :: "Ola Podrida excels at creating a beautifully atmospheric mood, as well as gentle beauty that's both spacious and deceptively complex."
