A psych-folk epic, Lady Hope is a wild hour-long ride through inner darkness and personal mythology.

"Tucker Theodore’s Lady Hope is such a profit. It resides in a monastery high on a mountain top, its caterwaul descending among the ruins of past civilizations. It cascades within the deafening rock slide that brings its wisdom down to the massive." - Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus

“The songs bleed through their own walls, with guitars going in various directions while vocals chase their own echoed tails through corridors filled with lonely dust. At times the air clears and specific notes, words and thoughts are evident on the whorl. At those moment, listeners will get a non-generic psych charge that will make their tails wiggle but good.” - The Wire

"With its combination of droning noise and outsider folk, wrapped up with snaking tendrils of dense and snarling rock, Lady Hope is quite unlike any other album you’ll hear this year. It’s an hour long beast that’s unapologetically complex and opaque, but also has an uncanny ability to move you on an instinctive, subconscious level." - Various Small Flames

"Lady Hope is full of dramatic dissolutions and musical convergences, making it one of the most interesting releases of this year. He’s produced an album that resists intrusion and rewards patience, a rare collection of songs that doesn’t play down to the expectations of its audience." - The Tape Deck

"Lady Hope is a beautifully sad love letter, crumpled and set alight in a rusted oil barrel full of bent nails." - Cassette Gods

"I can’t imagine a better solar eclipse soundtrack than this wild album" - Mr. Tum Radio

"A wounded horn calling into a hole in the ground." - Small Albums
