"(...)Frederick St. Peter's depressant tone and energy takes liberty in expanding ritardandos and maximizing lo-fi quality; it also effectively juxtaposes flowing, melodic sections with arresting interludes.(...)" -Sutter Greaves, A n t i : Music (in a review of FRSP&ZGTC Split)

"(...)the piano work is all very lo-fi, in contrast to the often pristine sound of the electronics, ambience, and field work. each track is often placed in a new section of the stereo mix. the piano never flinches in its fidelity, but the world morphs around it. this gives the impression that the piano is some kind of summoning entity to me. there's a sort of power to it. even when it does get chopped (or dare i say, even screwed), it still lays at the center of it all.(...)" -Patrick Totally, Cavern Brew Records (on Wabi-sabi)
