REVIEWS

Boulder Weekly, Caitlin Rockett

“…quirky indie rock you need to hear now. Even in the album’s darkest moments, Schuller delivers songs in a way that’s so charming, so funny, so in tune with the complexity of human emotion, you can’t help but smile.”

Nashville Scene, Stephen Trageser

“J.W. Schuller’s clever all-acoustic pop wouldn’t be out of place in an addendum to Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs.”

Duluth News Tribune, Tony Bennett

“Suddenly, we’re being told about Frank Lloyd Wright’s sex life over music that somehow resembles The Beatles or Neutral Milk Hotel. It’s a hoot. Over and over, the songs on “All Important Artists” surprise in small, yet important ways. It’s an excellent, playful, vibrant album full of thoughtful, humorous songwriting.”

Riftmagazine.com, Becca Marx

“Every so often, you happen upon music that you didn’t know you were missing, a kind of musical “aha moment”. All Important Artists is just such stuff, an original from beginning to end that occupies a space within your playlist that didn’t exist before. Schuller has a voice evocative of Jeff Tweedy, and isn’t afraid to employ a unique treatment for each song, from anthemic dirge to indie-folk and all styles in between.”

Bolderbeat, Hannah Oreskovich

“The song’s [No Mud in Joyville] somewhat nonsensical verses and catchy chorus are of Schuller’s signature style, one which keeps the listener wondering what he’ll say next and simultaneously has them singing along after a minute or two.”
