Everything about the sound of 'Hèloïse' unfolds from the centrality of Noah Wall's voice, whether it's new wave disco or simpler pop being treated to his almost maximalist production. Though that same centrality tends to lend the album a melancholic edge, the sensation is in no way inescapable. These songs are an homage - to Noah's mother, Hèloïse Wall - and their emotional significance unfolds in a more spectacular array of color and energy than conventional albums. For those of us still graced by the presence of our mothers, a sense of that significance is elusive, but Noah's homage ultimately achieves a certain unity of transcendence that we can all know.

"Noah Wall is currently Brooklyn-based and making the kind of über-positive bedroom bliss music that all upstanding citizens of said burrough probably dream about in their most weed-addled unconscious moments." -Impose Magazine

"...haunted, secretly elegant." -FADER

"Like Reznor in his progressive form, Noah Wall quickly makes the shift from angst filled industrial to calm, intelligent electronica. In a similar way to Matthew Dear, only more pronounced. The moments are chosen carefully, the synths placed perfectly and everything, may I repeat, everything is aligned in an architectural manor that cannot be ignored. It’s hard to dance to a dance beat that’s this deadly serious." -Dingus

"Simultaneously dark and uplifting." –Black Plastic

"Call it deconstructionist disco . . . Worth every second of tension." –Yvynyl

"I'll just throw out there the flickering Berlin-era David Bowie similarities, even if it's a somewhat lazy assessment... Definitely look out for this guy in the future." –Tiny Mix Tapes

"...just the thing my throbbing mind needs right now." –Pasta Primavera
