Pissing Stars is a fever dream whose central tensions feel all too real…mysterious yet relatable, and a distinctly singular experience. It’s Menuck’s gift that he can take chilling melody lines and unsettled, often ugly, effects and turn out something so beguiling, like a trick of the light; desperate, terrifying and strangely beautiful
— Drowned in Sound ★★★★★★★★☆☆
The Godspeed You! Black Emperor co-founder’s second album searches for love in the middle of a hellscape, with surprising shades of Springsteen.
— Pitckfork 7.8
Pissing Stars plays like a text that invites rereading and re-deciphering. It is intimate and alienating; friendly and mysterious; and, most importantly, a whole lot of eerie fun for any listener interested in experimental music.
— Exclaim ★★★★★★★★☆☆
A remarkable solo achievement from one of Constellation Records most creative of forces…a phenomenal musical experience.
