“Used to be a time when MV & EE's main means of expression was their Child Of Microtones. Tons of full length albums would be released every year on that label, but nowadays, we're lucky if we get more than one per year). True the band seem to permanently be on the road so there is less time to record anything at the Maximum Arousal Farm. The Heroine Celestial Agriculture label has now gone on to become the main outlet for their live recordings (these seem to pop up everywhere like weed—no pun intended) and I'm not complaining really, but I do miss all the elaborately packaged albums from the early years. Hick Smoke is the first CoM release for 2009 (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more) and is an interesting mix between the band's bastardized Neil Young clones, their LSD-laced folk tunes and the infamous extended freak-out jams. Sure wish there would be more like this, cuz Hick Smoke is definitely a must for fans.”—The Reall Nitty Gritty.
