    "Fans of music that braids aspects of folk and the psychedelic avant-garde, minimalism, electronic experimentation and sonic mood painting will find things to like in knives of spain. There are subtle connections to be made with artists like the Silver Apples, Linda Perhacs, Colleen, early Pink Floyd, Can, the Latin Playboys, Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson, Vashti Bunyan and Portishead." YES WEEKLY
    ............................................................................
    "Gwen Young's voice seems to slip through these fissures of a decomposing world. Sinuously entangling words of enchantment around the various instruments amusing her, these well crafted tracks flicker like an incandescent bulb at the end of its life. Fortunately for Telluric we can start the cassette again when it ends." LOST IN A SEA OF SOUND
    ............................................................................
    "The trobairises - a group of medieval female Occitan troubadours - were the first women to write secular music. Little extant information remains about them, and only one existing song has survived with its musical notation intact. Greensboro's Gwen Young, who records and performs as knives of spain, considers herself a twenty-first century trobairitz, using electrified nylon-stringed guitar, analog synthesizer, accordion, flute, broken autoharp, percussion, violin and voice; she makes warped, mystical and unconventional pop music that, indeed, sounds as though it comes from another age."
