Recent praise for Baby Alpaca:
“…Sea of Dreams, which channels The Smiths with it’s dreamy, light dada-rock production – think soft, romantic rock that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. The debut EP ranges from playful to emotional, but always leaves you impressed. “ – Disco Naïveté
“”psychedelic dream-folk” – Interview Magazine
“…schooled in the Brolin-way of sparse, soulful pop. Everything is there to be inspected. There to be prodded at. But with nothing overwhelming the vital element – Kittrell’s vocals – you’ve no reason not to pay attention.” – This is Fake DIY
