“PEAR is the quantum entangling of atomized mental ephemera, Dancing about an ecosystem of plastic plantations…. Danny James’ music occupies city hall, loitering in teapot shanties with time released viagra femme boost steroids like a Mr. Tea drag queen. ” – Ariel Pink
“Perhaps unexpected from a contemporary underground rock act come tones and grooves that could just as easily fit in with ’70s funk and soul. Singer/bassist Danny James has an ethereal voice that rises above the mellow cotton candy clouds of sound and continues on into space. Add to that harmonies and guitar work with an affinity for glam rock, and you have something that redefines the concept of retro. ” – San Francisco Chronicle
