Praise and reviews for Body Shame:

An “...expanse of slowly desiccating beats, buzzing computer racket, and the occasional intrusion of what might be a melody — all the better to enjoy the ride through every unexpected twist and turn and to make sure you don’t get hurt as the ground crumbles away beneath your feet.”
    - Robert Ham, Oregon Music News

“Body Shame blasts through synth-heavy post-punk/industrial screeds with lots of excess imagination and ingenuity. Like robots suffering from an identity crisis or questioning their gender assignments.”
    - Cassette Gods

“...sounds like a cyborg trying to eat its own body. It is profoundly unpleasant and deeply perfect. Consider this a soundtrack for your worst vision of our future.”
    - Chris Stamm, Willamette Week

“This tape kicks your ass and doesn't let up. Just when you think it's over
it picks up again and slams you into another strange world. It's like the audio equivalent of the old Heavy Metal magazines. Really awesome stuff.”
    -Traumatic Static Webzine
