Music Story  November 8, 2013
"...A SXSW breakout last seen opening for Phoenix, Montreal's Mac DeMarco cuts slacker jams that sound like West African guitar-pop on a warped tape deck. He put out two sleeper hits in 2012: Rock & Roll Night Club, a sardonic FM-themed EP of roxy music, and 2, which, in terms of vibe, had more of a neon glow to Kurt Vile's smoke-ring haze..."

The War on Drugs
Music Review  May 2, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Given the Garcia/Weir split of the War on Drugs, wherein departed longhair Kurt Vile once interwove lysergic epiphanies with co-captain Adam Granduciel, this Philly-by-way-of-Oakland trio gives as good as it gets. Lost in the Dream matches last year's Wakin' on a Pretty Daze from Vile riff for riff..."

As many have noted, the album could be considered a companion piece to Kurt Vile's Smoke Ring For My Halo in much the same way Wilco's A.M..."

The War on Drugs’ Universality
Bandleader’s anachronistic familiarity fuels first of two shows
DAILY Music  October 1, 2017, by Rachel Rascoe
"...Alternating new songs with selections from War on Drugs’ previous release, 2014’s Lost in the Dream, the 38-year-old focal point only diverged into old territory mid-set, revisiting his Kurt Vile-partnered origins from Wagonwheel Blues. Acoustic guitar in hand, his rendition of “Buenos Aires Beach” stirred up the old roots amid a now-danceable beat..."

Choctaw Wildfire, Daniel Eyes & the Vibes
Music Review  January 7, 2016, by Doug Freeman
"...Power trio Villasana followed with woozy, boozy, R&B-inflected guitar jams, but outside closer Daniel Eyes & the Vibes polished better promise with a swagger bigger than the stage. Previewing upcoming debut EP Sweet Dreaming, the local quartet unloaded slacker punk energy with tunes that bounced between Eighties Dire Straits and Police, and the rawer garage guitar of Kurt Vile...."
