Review for "After Brilliance" from UK music review Leicester Bangs:
Both Golden and Kander write the songs, and both sing them. Their “togetherness” is evident throughout the eleven tracks of the album. Often singing together, their harmonies are delicate and graceful, and bring an indie edge to the Americana arrangements. They begin the record with “Outlawz”, a quirky song about breaking the law, which has considerably more in common with Bonnie Prince Billy than Judas Priest. “Combover” arrives fully formed on the coattails of an upbeat country shuffle and “The Kids” warms up with a little psychedelic magic, via Twin Peaks’ Black Lodge, before settling into something quite gentle and positively life-affirming. They end with the beautiful, haunting “Autograph”, which ebbs and flows like a classic Neil Young song.
