The Mosquitos definitely have friends in high places. In Rolling Stone critic David Fricke's "Out There" column, he raved about the trio: "Just in time for summer's end: the endless summer and tender Braziliana of this New York trio's debut, a sweet hybrid of bossa nova hypnosis and indie-pop restraint. Juju Stulbach is a genuine gift from Ipanema, a Rio De Janeiro native, with a voice like warm night air; singer-guitarist Chris Root and keyboard player Jon Marshall Smith dust the soft hip shake of 'Rainsong' and 'So Far Away' with sprinkles of Neu! and Yo La Tengo. As the cold arrives and the nights grow long, this album will come in handy."
