"Eerie, appalachian-tinged confessionals marked by spellbinding honesty."
- THE NEW YORKER
"Her voice is as haunting as an abandoned coal mine, while it dances with the even tempo guitar that seems to pluck itself."
"The results are like a first crush, beautiful and terrifying."
- OTHER MUSIC
"This music is rare and seems to hark back to days of old when magic was still alive and strange creatures roamed the earth."
- COLLECTED SOUNDS
"It seems to be visiting a childhood unsanitized and uncensored, chasing after beauty with a sort of animal ferocity.
McCarthy writes songs that capture the terror and wonder of the natural world."
- CHICAGO READER
"It's a magical collection of songs that transort the listener into another dimension, where the only thing you need to pack is your imagination."
- THE WIRE
