“scrappy and buzzy guitar rock, bolstered by Kempner’s dexterous riffs … also offers some darker, nuanced shades that evoke the album’s themes.” NPR
“A Dazed-Sounding Tribute To The Magic Of Queer Love” The Fader
“Kempner hums [these] private pleasures over a gently looping acoustic guitar line that sounds like something from one of Broken Social Scene’s whispered love songs, luxuriating in her present bliss and overcoming past anxieties.”
“Her songs tend to pack the punch of dark personal experience and observations while still sounding bubbly; they often go down like jello shots.” New York Magazine’s “Vulture”

Prolific powerhouse Ellen Kempner aka Palehound released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, A Place I’ll Always Go, last year on Polyvinyl Record Co. Having ended 2017 with a US headlining tour (which saw shows with Big Thief, Jay Som, Mitski, M Ward, and more), the band is hitting the road again for a co-headlining tour with Weaves at the top of next month (see dates here or below).
