'Looner is a two-person rock band that uses digital looping to create layered and lustrous musical soundscapes live onstage. An experimental duet in performance, Looner is comprised of Zoë Roche's singing and bass playing, with Angel Roche Jr. on lead and rhythm guitar, beat box, percussion, and drums. With music that simmers and grows into a synthesis of sound, Looner is a different kind of rock band that must be experienced to be believed.' - Alexis Poledouris Review from Tasty Fanzine - UK 'I'd already listened to this album a couple of times before I read the accompanying letter and learned that it was the work of a duo rather than a full-band - fancy! It seems, in this instance, having fewer cooks around definitely improves the flavour of the broth. The sparse treatment definitely suits "Outside" and "My Time", and the implementation of human beat-box on these tracks and several others is inspired. The percussive climax of "All Right" would have made the Beta Band proud, while "Don't You Know" makes it more than obvious that the pair have been listening to Gorillaz just a little bit. Throw in some chiming guitar, a solid grasp of pop and voila! Indie/goth/hip-hop anyone? The bottom line is this is a CD that I'm still coming back to again and again.' Will Columbine.
