Selected press:"'Common Objects' is an incredibly restrained affair that embraces a songwriting approach to music that is commonly improvised. Greenspon has totally mastered this technique creating a controlled and thoughtful take on blissful ambient drone that occasionally threatens to explode into violent outbursts of noise... the best I've heard and reviewed this week."
- Norman Records review of Common Objects LP
"A sonic feast devoured in three all-too-short minutes composed of deliciously delayed guitar pickings and crunchy crescendo-ing soundscapes."
- Ric Leichtung, Pitchfork on "Machine Shop"
"One of the most unabashedly gushed about records of last year. Full of warm and inviting guitar tones with a dangerous streak of harsh noise running beneath... 9 songs of gorgeous, hazy guitar drones that have nary an equal... a strong contender for album of the year."
- Ryan Hall, Tome To The Weather Machine review of "Bracing"
"...the interaction is made up of an almost solipsistic communication with compositional structures, evolving abstract spaces of sound and melody the listener may get lost in until the construction occasionally collapses by means of sudden, unexpected interferences of tape manipulation or other noise production... exactly the musical category where he has established a position among the most outstanding contemporary artists.
'Exhibit' gives a pretty representative idea of the artist's more demanding explorations into heavy tape manipulation, harsh noise and collage techniques that you will also find on 'Common Objects.' For what it's worth, Kevin Greenspon's output is among the most fascinating and exciting stuff you'll hear in 2010."
- Henning Lahmann, No Fear Of Pop on "Unveiling" and "Common Objects" vinyl LP
"His work contains discernable movements of sound that are soft and ethereal during one moment while dissonant and destructive during another. In a perfect world, Greenspon's soundscapes would be the soundtrack for Disneyland's Space Mountain, echoing all the speedy thrills and turbulence of interplanetary travel. Drone and noise are staples of experimental music, but rarely are they applied so effectively as Greenspon's moody, crescendoing sound collages."
- Abe Ahn, OC Weekly review of live performance at University of Irvine
"Pillowy guitar washed bedroom pop for a lazy Sunday afternoon."
- Sam Hockley-Smith, The Fader on "Bracing"
"Over the past couple of years Kevin Greenspon has consistently made some of the most enjoyable ambient tracks that I have had the privilege to hear. Waves of guitar drone across vibrant soundscapes as one man bares his soul. It is easy to get lost in Greenspon's music as it almost seems to take control at times."
- Jheri Evans, Altered Zones on "Common Objects" LP
"Intentionality is where Greenspon diverges from the pack, as his compositions feel considered at each moment, and fully under his control. On 'Common Objects', he takes the tones and methods common to ambient, and builds more memorable and more repeatable (as in a live setting) tracks permeated by a soft hookiness. On a song like 'It Might Take Me a Few Years' which is led by a few melodic guitar lines, his attention to musicianship is apparent, but throughout the album, even the more droning and vibrating pieces of the puzzle – which aren’t commonly thought of in relation to musicianship – feel evenly sustained and in the right proportions."
- Greg Argo, Adequacy.net review of "Common Objects" LP
"[Bracing is] A dark and atmospheric album mainly of guitar compositions that run the gambit of pop to beautiful noise. Greenspon is great at portraying tone and emotion through music that has very little vocals, and when vocals are present they are understated so much so that the guitars feel like they are doing the talking. While at times Greenspon’s music can feel ambient overall it is a pop album, and I feel like it appeals as much to the fan of noise as it does to the fan of rock going from white noise to up-beat pop into a wall of sound, and even meandering psychedelia."
- Tom Pavlich, gprecs review of "Bracing"
"A highly personal, articulated album... On this long-player, he has certainly crafted a beautiful series of textured landscapes."
- William Cody Watson, Impose magazine, on "Common Objects" LP
"A peripatetic and a workaholic, Kevin Greenspon is constantly touring around California and hocking a small library of post-noise / blistered ambient cassettes & cd-rs that he's been producing over the past couple of years. Having performed alongside the likes of Pedestrian Deposit and Infinite Body, his smoldering, sorta-shoegazing dronescapes make a lot of sense. The A-side of this tape begins with a creeping two-note guitar melody, accompanying a muffled crackle and occasional interruptions of short noise transmissions. Out of the compressed noise and overdriven distortion pedals, a summery lullaby emerges from the tape murk and grime that blossoms through harmonic clouds of organ/synth drones and guitar smear. Yeah, comparisons to Infinite Body's prickly noise-pop hybrids are definitely apt. The B-side continues with these same ideas, as serene washes of distorted noise allude to something sinister just seething below all of the shimmer, twinkle, and glisten. 25 minutes in duration, and another great tape released through Monorail Trespassing!"
