"With a plethora of fuzzy, angular riffs and unpredictable rhythm shifts at their disposal, the lo-fi aesthetic throughout their album 'The Pope's Sister' is at once hugely original and amazingly accessible. Most definitely one for fans of slacker lo-fi bands such as Sebadoh, Polvo and Soul Coughing."
BBC Radio Ulster
"Filled with angular and well constructed songs “The Pope's Sister” is an intriguing collection from Irish band Music for Dead Birds. With the songs dominated by rhythm and heavy guitar lines, there is an uneasy backbeat to the tunes, something evident on the excellent “The Only Male Nun in Town”. , whilst on “The Doctor's Daughter” a dream like state is invoked, samples of speech adding to the fragility of the song. By the time you get to “Release the Dogs” you find you are fully immersed in the album, the twisted guitar lines hooking you in with relentless ease, only releasing as the last strains of “The Electricians Father” fade away."
