"Toronto’s Decoration Day make songs that are remarkably soothing. On their second release, Makeshift Future, the chamber folk band soften fear’s sharp edges with gentle instrumentals. Across the album’s 10 tracks, Decoration Day ferment with anxious thoughts but they do so while cradling you in calming tones and so by record’s end, you feel renewed." Read here!

"The album is obviously heavy in romantic angst, but for all the lyrical gems, it’s the music that truly shines."

"Nesrallah’s vocals [rises] through it all with a kind of relaxed regret, fierce feelings as voiced from a late night hotel lounge, where the light is low and drink allows a certain romance to creep into the fabric of things."
