Press
"One of the best hip-hop albums recorded in France so far. High fashion pop melodies, mixed with makeshift percussion. Auvergne and France have never seemed so close to San Francisco,” Magic, April 2009

"Pastry Case, worthy of Anticon’s hip-hop-melodic experimensl" Volume, April 2009

"Stripped, slow, melancholic, without any comparison for the most part, Grand Daddy can be at times, Pastry Case tinkers wobbly bits with pieces of anything and a disembodied voice perfectly suited to the little unrealistic atmosphere of the album ", Le Nouvel Observateur, June 11, 2009

"Society will realize they need Pastry Case," To Discover Absolutely, April 2009

"More than ever, we realize that the beauty of a album is not linked to production or recording itself, but the sincerity of the artist," Froggy Delight, April 2009
