"Outer space ambient plumbs the interstellar depths within."
- from Bandcamp's "New and Notable"
"Similar to the previous record, Sigh of Relief manages to create a dark and somewhat gloomy mood without relying on dark tones. Behind the darkness hides light." - Opduvel (Netherlands)
"Between slowcore and ambient, there is only one step, that of deepening it seems. It is therefore no surprise that we sometimes see the late metamorphosis of former major figures of the genre into Yoda masters of sound meditation." - dMute (France)
"More than the Kadane canvas reworked on other surfaces, we find the soul, diffuse, blurred, indefinable but present that makes [Sigh of Relief's] charm: a presence in the world that is definitely unique."
- Popnews (France)

I've been listening to Inlets constantly for 3 weeks now. Absolutely love Hum. Can't wait to check out their older stuff now. This album definitely has it's own identity, but for the sake of reference - imagine ISIS released Panopticon in the early 90s. Inlets releases in '94 as the optimal ripple of that album's influence. I say this only as a fun idea of their sound, from my perspective.
Hum - Inlets is an all time great for me, already. Brian Rossini

Me and my friend used to go on drives all the time, and a lot of the time i asked what he was playing, and a majority of the songs were from Yo La Tengo. And since i went and listened to And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out i was fan. Never thought i’d buy one of their records for myself. violetstain
