Jordan Lawrence from The Independent said “With three experimental pop acts that don’t venture so far into left field that they’re hard to catch, this show is an excellent free entry point into local music. Chapel Hill duo Veelee loops guitars and keys into subdued but insistent melodies well-suited for an earbud-assisted stroll. Carrboro’s Motor Skills bring l…ife to processed beats with earnest vocals and ethereal guitar. Opener Cassis Orange wraps twee-ready heartbreak into caustic but colorful lo-fi fuzz, spiced by the occasional computerized chirp.”
“To put it plainly: Three Sides, the debut EP from Chapel Hill duo Veelee, joins Wood Ear’s The Hard Way and Bowerbirds’ Danger at Sea as recent short, self-made Triangle debuts that are alarmingly, stop-what-you’re-doing-and-memorize-this good.” - Grayson Currin, The Independent
“Motor Skills debuted last year with “Right as Hell,” one of several stunning surprises on the excellent North Carolina compilation, Hear Here: The Triangle. Pitting a skittering electronic beat reminiscent of
late Radiohead against a steely-eyed, dark-lined anthem as addictive as anything Interpol has ever written, “Right as Hell” put Motor Skills high atop the must-watch list.” - HopscotchMusicFest.com
“The result of Cassis Orange’s ode to loneliness, was a keyboard laden four track self titled indie pop E.P., which upon being released onto an unsuspecting Internet, became a blogosphere sensation, garnering glowing reviews…” - The Fayetteville Feed
