"Recurring Chasms feels like the antidote to something, a pocket of stillness and reflection at the centre of our weariful world. In a time where what gets noticed is seemingly that which can shout the loudest, it’s welcome relief, and a timely reminder of the joys of a quiet room, the importance of being kind and power in looking after ourselves and those we care for." - Various Small Flames

"A gentle and sweet cassette of loving and loathing...An album full of beautifully plucked strings, uplifting percussion, and sailing vocals. If you’re on the lookout for the feel-good album that satisfies that Pacific Northwest pop itch, here you go." - Tiny Mix Tapes' Cerberus

"their fullest and most beautiful work yet." - ThrdCoast

"The Washboard Abs are a little Devendra Banhart, a little American Football and write beautiful, intimate tracks." - Wee World

"a new depth to their music with some angular rhythms and chiming electric guitar. Charming." - Overblown

"A perfect companion for a rainy day." - Independent Clauses

"the kind of record I just know I'll still be playing twenty years from now" - All Magazine

"Gentle feet of finches walk on damp pavement after all night rain." - VERYSMALLALBUMREVIEW
