Those Lavender Whales

"Their fuzzy, catchy folk balances cuteness with experimental flourishes and a classically honed sense of melody." - Jordan Lawrence, Independent Weekly
"Despite the somewhat quick-hitter nature of the tracks on the album, Those Lavender Whales use that limited space to craft these amazing multi-instrumental landscapes that allow the listener to frolic about freely.
Tomahawk of Praise is the end result of a three-year recording process that overlapped a flood, the marriage of frontman Aaron Graves and the now drummer Jessica Bornick and the subsequent relocation back to Graves' hometown. It's a sprawling series of complexities and a chaotic nature that translate so well to the recording process and finished product. " - Matt Adler, Birp.fm
