  • Sculptor, the follow-up to 2014’s wonderful Passerby, broadens Luluc’s palette and subject matter in rewarding ways.” [First Listen] – NPR MUSIC

  • “Repays careful and repeated attention, its varied qualities cohering effectively with a measured sense of control that, simultaneously, offers positive indications of the considerable potential for future even more diverse arrangements.” [8/10] – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

  • “The lyrical wrestling and sonic exploration nearly betrays their earliest work yet elevates their catalog—already so celebrated—to another level… Sculptor is an album that feels important.”[8/10] – UNDER THE RADAR

  • Sculptor is a small gift coming at the right time, a 36-minute reverie that nonetheless remains rooted in waking life. – POPMATTERS

  • “Randell and Hassett have made a record that boldly turns a corner while still slotting neatly into their already sterling catalog.” [4/5] – ALL MUSIC

  • “Randell’s lyrics reveal subversiveness too, telling of teenage insurrections and small-town upsets. Steve Hassett’s backing, meanwhile, is characterised by enough strange impulses and pleasing deviations to whirr and rattle through the stillness. The band’s third album is filled with such quirks and quiet rebellions.”  [4/5] – Q MAGAZINE
