"There is not one single wasted minute in this entire synth-accented, outsider-indie concept album...If you love PNW indie rock, this is going to melt your mind." - Cassette Gods

"when Waters steps up to sing her songs, it’s as if one’s transported back in time to the mid-90s indie rock scene; it’s not hard to put the music found here next to the best of Jenny Toomey (Tsunami, Liquorice), Rebecca Gates (The Spinanes), Mary Lou Lord, and, yes, The Lois...one of the truly delightful hidden treasures of 2019." - The Recoup

"Refreshingly, Downwardly Mobile: Steel Accelerator works really well as a cohesive whole, something that doesn’t seem such a concern in most streaming-era indie pop...the unique lyricism [where] everyday observations married with the slightly absurd to capture a world that’s far more familiar than some grey hyperrealist description." - Various Small Flames

"an album full of thoughtful, emotionally vibrant and warm indie pop for fans of Rainer Maria, Danielson and Mirah." - Queen City Sounds and Art

"Guidon Bear is a blast from the past...steeped in early 90s indie/riot grrrl sounds." - Snooping the Bandcamp

"garage-pop band Guidon Bear convey a lot of the quirky, indie rock tastefulness that the great K Records label delivered back in the day." -Destroy/Exist

"a truly wonderful indie piece tailor-made for longtime Magnet readers." - Magnet Magazine
