(L,G Trains to Lorimer/Metropolitan) “[Nutria NN] gives an almost exquisite poignancy to the lyrics." Roberta Smith, New York Times “Nutria NN takes the 1970’s South American folk tradition and transplants it to New York. Modern and nostalgic, with songs in English and Spanish and from the perspective of a Latin American in this country, Nutria NN could not exist anywhere but this city. […] Melancholic, conceptual, harrowing folk-rock.” NYRemezcla.com
