about

"...strange, heartfelt, and weirdly beautiful." -Altered Zones

"Watch Kate’s mighty African steed gallop through the grid of Motown acid and jagged megalithic pop that [railcars] has meshed, to soar up and burning Pegasus-phoenix-like into the sky, crash through it and beyond, leaving us earthbound and cowering under a deluge of heavenly fragments, the source of that gigantic drone with which the song closes." -20JazzFunkGreats

"Covering a veritable masterpiece takes some serious moxie, but SF/LA-based Aria Jalali of railcars has done right in putting his own fuzz/noise electronic pop stamp on Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love." -The Bay Bridged

"...drowning among a sea of melted tape and LFO, it’s one of the most convincingly aspirational renderings there’s ever been." -FADER

"...sounds like a Boy George tape and a Dan Deacon tape being simultaneously eaten by two broken Walkmans. That means it’s awesome." -OMGVinyl

"...blow[s] your tiny mind into a glittering chandelier of smithereens that you'll blissfully . . . gaze at, your entire mental being twinkling in refracting light patterns above your transfixed physical shell." -Not For Resale

"Many have stepped up to the Kate Bush plate, and as many have failed. It seems better to go for broke than keep close to the original, and Jalali is certainly triumphant in doing so." -RCRD LBL

"The fawning over the greatest Bush that ever lived has hit some high watermarks lately . . . Good timing for railcars, who's made a monumental ode to the English lady..." -Impose Magazine

"...enchanting, in the most puzzling way." -Lost Lost Lost
