"This is the new project from, of course, Mark Monnone. As you know, Mark was the bassist in The Lucksmiths, Australia's purveyors of perfect pop, but when that band called it a day a few years back Mark needed someone to occupy his time. Though based back in his homeland, these songs were recorded by Drew Cramer in San Francisco (Mark is always traveling the world). "Pink Earrings" is a warm groove with a warm low end while the flip, "When We Hit the Ground," cranks it up a notch with a hint of fuzz on the guitars and Mark's heartfelt, Jonathan Richman-esque vocals." Tim Hinely, Blurt
"It was kind of surprising that the first Lucksmith to release a record after their breakup was bassist Mark Monnone. I figured it would Marty or Tali, but when you’re sitting on a song like Pink Earrings then you gotta go first. Sublimely understated pop that will make you grin." The Finest Kiss
