“A Hawk & A Hacksaw’s music is a fusion of folk music styles that feels unforced, thoughtful and celebratory, and You Have Already Gone To The Other World is their finest work yet.” -Emusic
“You Have Already Gone to the Other World, produced by Deerhoof's John Dieterich, is their best yet.” 8/10 Uncut
“The duo [are] at the top their game, effortlessly weaving the past into the future (and vice-versa) with undeniable skill and refreshing amounts of empathy. “ -All Music Guide
“Almost half a century may have elapsed between the release of the film and this album, but there’s evidence of shared artistic approaches at play, both parties occupying positions on the edges of their respective fields.” -Music OMH
“Coming at it from a Western perspective, it’s tempting to consider whether A Hawk And A Hacksaw have made their Loveless, or Nevermind ...“ 9/10 Drowned in Sound
“Gritty lutes sounds like they're played with granite plectrums as men dance acorss shattered glass. A hammer dulcimer (santur) burbles in frenzy... An honourable and exciting tribute.” -The Wire
“ There is a constant stream of music – in the fact the whole history of music – flowing in the upper atmosphere,in what they used to call the 'Aether'. Apparently The Hawks (HAAHS) have managed to mainline a very particular vein of that lofty realm, and now the music of fervid pagans, of revelers, of the intoxicated, the sensualists and the joyful brawlers flows through them effortlessly. They’re riding the snorting steed of Bacchus. Their instruments and their voices are ecstatic swords, swooping with blithe abandon through the soft flesh of the world, killing and then discarding the ordinary and the mundane with an unbridled commitment to joy and mesmeric, gleeful self-immolation. Have fun!" -Michael Gira (Swans)
"I've loved A Hawk and a Hacksaw ever since I first encountered them with the release of their first album. Over the years they've surprised and thrilled me repeatedly - both on record and at their incendiary live shows. I find their music so thrilling, I think, because their music offers many qualities I rarely hear in music either new or old. It embodies a deep ethnographic knowledge of Balkan, Turkish and Eastern European music which contrasts to the magpie-like tokenism of most musicians who claim influence from around the world, but is not afraid to transform those roots into something new; never content to be an homage or museum piece. In a musical climate awash with ironic detachment and self-conscious posing it is a treasure to find music that has the courage of its convictions - that caries such a richness of musical, literary, and broader cultural association. And, as it seems from from getting to know Jeremy and Heather over the years, that is so personal - that embodies so much of who they are. However, this all seems too wordy and worthy to do them justice; above all A Hawk and a Hacksaw make music to be enjoyed viscerally before cerebrally - music that is both beautiful and fun." Dan Snaith, Caribou
