press reviews

"Hard Times [...] displays a wronged yet rapturous beauty that holds bare and emotional truths. It's a well-hewn and carefully pieced-together recording of embellished strings and swooning harmonies that fits in perfectly with Krakus' strong and intimate body of work." Discorder

"On the surface it may be difficult to find a relationship between the graceful melodies of country music and the fiery social commentary of early-era punk rock. But it's those elements fused with a skillful understanding of folk music that help [Olenka and the Autumn Lovers] deliver another unique offering..." The Londoner

"It is a testament to the depth of these tales that somehow the experience of listening to Hard Times is uplifting." Toronto Rhapcity
