Recent raves for TMTS:

"Moonbeams, the debut album from the group, is a collection of catchy, upbeat indie pop with enough experimental twists and turns to keep it interesting." - NPR  www.npr.org
"This guy is from Seattle, and, good lord, he is good!" - USA TODAY  www.usatoday.com

"This standout track ("Lolita") has the straightahead bedroom vocals of Guided by Voices, the lilting pop instincts of fellow Seattleites the Long Winters, and chutes-and-ladders melodies recalling the Shins. All are in service of a breezy July-afternoon song full of ramshackle bells, electronic beats, and simple, chugging guitars." - PITCHFORK MEDIA  

"A captivating set of songs that begs for repeated listens." - FILTER MAGAZINE
