    shards of slop pop and interstellar surf.

    all three.” –Boston Globe

    “Casey Desmond’s sophomore disc, No Disguise (Sound Museum) is very much
    a pop record, and there’s no shame in that, with its dark shades and
    sophisticated arrangements it would still stand out as one of the more
    adventurous things on the radio. -Boston Phoenix
