"On Valeen Hope, it's as if Loden has dumped his entire kit of keyboards, circuitry, and laptop into a campfire, trying it all in the flames to see what of its "essence" remains. It hisses and crackles with a singular, burning instensity, as if slowly and painfully evolving from electronica into some sort of neo-folk."
-The Wire "This conflict of the tangible and the intangible seems to resurface itself throughout the album, but it is this conflict that draws me to the music....By observing, the intangible became something tangible-a transubstantiated shift made in Loden's Valeen Hope"
