"Sloth Racket are far from slothful - the music never stays in one place for too long, it is consistently evolving and developing with a good balance between form and freedom."
"This is a group that is willing to stretch itself and take musical risks. Distinctive and highly creative music that explores the intriguing hinterland between the written and the spontaneous."
