The best kept secret in music



Perfect rainy-day weather music. Buoyed by clean guitar and warm keyb’s and in his soft, steady voice, Gautreau’s words ring with more truth than most of what passes for today’s alt-rock hit parade.

"Self Navigation Review"

The stunning result is enough to make you wish it were night all day long. - PITCHFORK


An opus of romantic gloom... a dreamy, whispered collection - Dallas Observer

"The kind of passion rarely heard on pop records."

The kind of passion rarely heard on pop records. - Devil in the Woods

"Utterly moving."

Creates a meditative mood and sticks to it. Despite the languid pace of the songs,things don't get dull. Gautreau imbues his sound with such feeling and grace that it's hard to let go. Utterly seductive. That sound. It is the sound that really makes this disc. A certain echo in that guitar, the way the keyboards add just the right touch. Almost everything on this album has a delicate touch, to the extent that even the slightest heavy hand could ruin things. That doesn't happen. This album could not be forced. It simply had to flow, and it does. Crushed Stars has made music of uncommon elegance. Its muted dramatics are as moving as the most bombastic symphony. Utterly moving. - Aiding and Abetting
