"This record is a knockout and a wonderful listening experience; it's easy to get lost in its mystery and beauty." - Performer Magazine


"Neale writes deep and soul-baring folk music that has earned her appropriate comparisons to Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten with a hazy vocal quality that brings to mind Hope Sandoval.” - Utne Magazine


"[Born in the Summer] is a splendid tune...Neale takes the listener inside the mind of an individual looking for answers about life and one’s own purpose. It’s a clever piece of songwriting" - The Revue


"...hazy psychedelic folk that is equal parts sunny sonic sensibilities and morose and outlaw-esque when it comes to sentimentality" - Philthy Mag


“Hopeless romantics have found the soundtrack for their summer” - The SSFW


“Lael’s songs transpire a true authenticity that she embodies with a peaceful solemnity and a quietness that inspires respect.” - Rock NYC


“Her music is intimate, though not completely insular; there are moments when light and emotion escape and bring fresh air back into the room." - Nooga


“A hazy mix of psychedelia, lo-fi production, and folk with just the right amount of edge… there’s a vulnerability to Neale’s voice that sucks us in to the dark side without us even knowing it.” - Culture Collide
