He writes and performs with an assurance that belies his quivering delivery, so much so that he seems capable of leveling a city block with nothing but a weary sigh. In bedroom-recorded debut Spirals Of Silence, De Augustine’s got a whole arsenal of sublimely beautiful lo-fi folk lullabies at his disposal.”

Buzzbands LA Caught The Wild Reeds at Way Over Yonder Last Week! Apparently Lisa Bonet Did Too! (!?!?!)

"The youngest band on the lineup, this Los Angeles folk quintet had three female lead singers harmonizing songs of heartbreak, dreams and loneliness, wailing from the depths of softly trampled souls. What was even better, the first two rows of the audience consisted entirely of little kids swaying back and forth like they knew all the world’s sorrows. Best interaction: Singer: “Y’all know what it feels like to go crazy? Then you think, maybe you’re not crazy?” Child responds: “I am,” and he really meant it. As a bonus, half of these beautiful children in the audience seemed to belong to Lisa Bonet, standing behind them."

The Chicago Tribune Talks Sebadoh with Lou Barlow!

"When there’s too much of a push and pull (between band members), it’s not the most commercially advisable thing to do. We always really love the push and the pull.
