"Clearly, the practice of employing geographical themes in band designations has produced largely dubious outcomes (e.g. Asia, Boston, Chicago, America, Kansas, Berlin, Danzig, Hanoi Rocks, etc.) [...] The music of Nova Scotia, however, has got enough swank to make me forgive any misgivings about their moniker. For those who thrive on other band comparisons, their m.o. could be described as the Animacathedral Lab Technicians Orchestra of Admittance. This is not, however, to imply that these folks smartly rip off obscure bands whilst most stupidly rip off well-known bands. No, if you dig the four outfits I just referred to, you'll be happy to shovel this dirt too. Sparse, ramshackle drug shuffle that fuses kooky "ethnic" influences and improv abstractions with aplomb." (2002 Lines Of Flight review, Reid Gilchrist, Perfect Sound Forever)
