"I have seen many concerts in my time and this local show has knocked most of them down a peg. I walked out of the venue with the same feeling of euphoria that I can only compare to the feeling I had while leaving the Broken Social Scene concert I attended a few years back."

"the unquiet dead are on a musical quest to attain pure enlightenment. This cast of 10 musicians incorporate many styles into blues-infused Americana teeming with elements of folk, world music, gospel and psychedelia bolstered by a communal soul-hippie spirit-brimming with celestial harmonies, down-home guitars, and percussion-driven grooves. Essentially rooted in minimalist bluesy psych-folk channeled through the musical alchemy of a collective, the unquiet dead both embrace a revelatory spirit and an aura of mystery, creating music that√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s strikingly original alongside a newfound sense of the past.?" Toronto music blogger Lonely Vagabond (Dec. 5, 2011)
