Selected Press
"Weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic, Brooklyn's Glass Ghost offers dance-friendly art pop."
– Time Out New York
"...that irresistible, disjointed mix of pop hooks and Beefheartian abandon."
– Village Voice [read more here]
"..an affecting, gently aspirated bedtime piece...In tune and percussion it struck me as the nocturnal cousin to Merriweather Post Pavilion's "Guys Eyes."
– Stereogum
"...a fractured bit of art-pop featuring Krimsky's intoned falsetto over some spare production and airy beats."
– Pitchfork
"...otherworldly Brooklyn synth-and-drum duo."
– The New Yorker
"...the music has transformed; making it big by keeping it small."
– Filter
"Glass Ghost have a connection not unlike Sly and Robbie. It's a deep groove that no one bothers with anymore. It's nice to know it's still possible."
– Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic)
"Music for a sleepless night, to ride in the rain in the streets empty, trying to remember what are the sunny days sitting on the grass."
Delicious Scopitone
"It's incredibly moving and inspiring for me. Something to sustain me!."
– John Dietrich (Deerhoof)
"This duo is definitely making their own mark on the New York scene. With sweet vocals and awesome stuttering drums the band makes an immediate impact with very little going on onstage. It's simple, it's awesome, you should start listening."
– Pop Tarts Suck Toasted
"The overall tone of the band's debut album, "Idol Omen," is one of gorgeous patience and stepping lightly into this new world that's painted silver and frozen blue, white and light pink, a world that begins and ends with someone before a fire, trying to warm themselves back to an operative state, where they can enjoy the tea that's on the stove, the laughter and fresh air in the distance and the way that it makes you feel to recover from a numbing."
– Daytrotter [read more and listen here]
"A cool band you should check out: Glass Ghost....their sparse, intimate, intense and intriguing atmospheres might conquer you (and your date?)"
– The Deli
"It glows with warmth and a strange yet alluring uniqueness.  This is some cool stuff."
– Some Velvet Blog
"...really great - well worth a close listen. "
– Sitcom Serf
"…It’s the magic of falsetto, emotionally evocative keyboard and a one man african drum group that initially caught my ear..."
– The Fmly
