Pitchfork Media Today! [8.5/ Best New Music] : ” Visiter ends up being one of the most welcoming (and welcome) records of 2008 so far.” http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/49198-visiter

Spin [4 Stars] : “…balancing craftmanship and raw emotion.”

Entertainment Weekly B+ : “This is cerebral, twisted folk that’s as wistful as it is strident”

Rolling Stone : ” heads up, animal collective fans: this san francisco act whips up tribal-style grooves that are surprisingly cheery and layered for a band that consists of only two dudes playing acoustic instruments.”

NY Times at SXSW (Jon Pareles) : “But some of my favorite bands at the festival were those that made their impact on the spot. ; The Dodos, from SF, worked up to manic propulsion with hard strummed acoustic guitar and plinking piano.”
