US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Laid back countrified indie in the vein of Whitney or Pinegrove may be the modum of the US indie scene just now but far from riding bumper to bumper on that increasingly mainstream highway Bonny Doon live down a delightful side-street

  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Their nonchalant vibe can often overlook the emotional discourse on each track, however, when you listen closely, Longwave is heavy-hearted and sympathetic

  3. 7.0 |   Earbuddy

    Longwave is a band just jamming; creating some solid songs in the process

  4. 7.0 |   All Music

    What keeps Longwave's distinct improvisational character upright in the rocking chair, lost in thought instead of asleep like the cat, is a gentle melodicism and an impressionistic bent that's as pretty as it is simple

  5. 7.0 |   Clash

    ‘Longwave’ is a gently simple record but one which manages to exert an almost hypnotic pull

  6. 6.3 |   Pitchfork

    The Detroit band brings a light touch to the melancholic alt-country songs on this album, which emerged from a spontaneous session in the woods

  7. 6.0 |   Q

    A gently rewarding album. Print edition only

  8. 6.0 |   The 405

    They're a young band, touring like crazy, recording as much as possible, and they really do have the capacity to make another great record. Lets just hope that time comes sooner than later, or before it's too late at all

  9. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Longwave is languorous and amiable. The largely unchanging pace prompts yearnings for more frequent shifts from second gear, however. Print edition only
