###Praise for Michael J Epstein Memorial LibraryMichael J. Epstein Memorial Library featured on Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 2 show.-BBC"I'm not entirely sure how to describe what went into the recording of this album, but the results are absolutely stunning. Epstein has an ear for the goofily absurd and his music is well-crafted and playful. Reminds me of a much lighter Floating Opera. I'm liking this a lot, perhaps a lot better than a short review." -Aiding & Abetting"The song is easily loved, orchestrated folk-pop that buries itself in your head in the most desirable of ways...But what's most impressive about "Amylee" is that with it The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library joins the ranks of some of the indie pop greats - Elf Power, The Essex Green, and other leftovers from the Elephant 6 days. And this is a very, very good thing." -FensePost"Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library are the creators of illustrious musical pieces that combine indie folk and alt-country. Michael Epstein, the brains behind all this musical genius, integrates parts of his life to make music that moves from genre to genre without any borders. Epstein's inspiration for the band began from visual and compositional elements. Once things took flight, the music began flowing. --MAGNET"You know I love concept bands, so when the girls in the band all came out dressed as librarians and started the show by telling the audience 'Shhhhhhhhhhh!' I knew that this was right up my alley. Musically, they were kind of a light indie-pop...sort of like Papas Fritas. The violin and flute screamed "class," though not too loudly...this is a library, after all. They were solid, and they had a lot of good stage banter, which is really the difference between a good live band and a great live band." -Jason, To Eleven"EPSTEIN IS A MASTERMIND. ...Volume One is full of really well produced, soft-spoken music. It's an album that gently pulls you in until you find that you've been listening to it for hours. Even the darker songs, like their cover of The Bad Seeds 'The Weeping Song,' are reformed into the bands gentle tones." -Ryan's Smashing Life
