“Dungeonesse’s sound is poised somewhere between the past and present. Their take on the poppier side of modern R&B would sound at home on a playlist with Jessie Ware and Solange, but they’re also trying to reanimate a very specific mid-90s vibe— think Jock Jams for a private party rather than a whole bleacher-rocking stadium. They embrace their influences wholeheartedly, enough to bring the past vividly into the present moment.” - Pitchfork’s review of Dungeonesse

“Grant’s neuroses arrive dripping with honesty and forthrightness, mostly expletively and with alarming impact. Grant writes marvelously personal lyrics, full of gusto and self-awareness and a semi-hidden sneer that make even his demure compositions seem like some kind of super-mature punk rock performance art.” - Paste’s review of Pale Green Ghosts

“Pale Green Ghosts is defined by Grant’s willingness to broadcast directly from his hell; he’s a bit of a serial confessor, and the confessions are marked by blitheness that belies just how much he did care…Grant’s ease of disclosure can be unnerving, but it’s this sense that nothing is (seemingly) too private for him to share in a song that makes Pale Green Ghosts so potent and, ultimately, accessible.” - Pitchfork’s review of Pale Green Ghosts.

LOVE the AV Club’s review of Dungeonesse, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak’s new electropop side-jam: “…there’s no irony, just joyous reverence for the pop radio of their youth. Nor is Dungeonesse a gloomy, ghostly venture in line with Wye Oak and the crop of wannabe Clams Casinos clogging up Bandcamp. Even at its most minor, the record offers a refreshing reprieve from the dark side of R&B revivalism, rescuing the genre from the brink of self-parody and establishing Wasner as one of music’s most malleable talents.” Spin Dungeonesse at radio now!
