“scrappy and buzzy guitar rock, bolstered by Kempner's dexterous riffs … also offers some darker, nuanced shades that evoke the album's themes." NPR

“The 2015 album “Dry Food” marked Ellen Kempner as a bright new talent to watch, with a winning combination of quick guitar instincts and languorous vocals. The group’s latest release, “A Place I’ll Always Go,” is even better.” The New York Times

“A Dazed-Sounding Tribute To The Magic Of Queer Love” The Fader

“There are echoes of earlier bands, with songs that brings to mind Smith Westerns, Beach House, the Strokes, or Wilco... arranged around Kempner’s unique whisper of a voice and way of seeing the world that draws out the moodiness. This undercurrent distinguishes the project, and makes Kempner worth following." Pitchfork

“There's a distinct '90s sound, a channelling of Pavement complete with head-swaying riffs..."
Under The Radar

“guitar licks that build a permanent home in your head.” - New York Magazine’s “The Cut”

Ellen will also do a Reddit /r/indieheads AMA this Friday, June 30 at 1pmEST.

A Place I’ll Always Go is a frank look at love and loss, cushioned by indelible hooks and gently propulsive, fuzzed-out rock.
