Album Notes
“It’s hard to resist something billed as “lesbian-fronted electro anti-folk,” isn’t it? The interesting combination of politically charged vocals with danceable electronic beats offered up by the duo Kara Sherman and Rich Ratvasky works particularly well on clubby cuts like “Still Stuck,” and humorous diatribes like “Consumer Whore.”
-Curve Magazine

“Over irresistibly bouncy beats, a sexy/smoky voice sagely ponders the big questions reminding us, sometimes subtly and sometimes quite specifically, that someday you and I and everyone will breathe our last. If dreams had soundtracks -- that is, the compelling kind of dream that keeps you thinking long after you arise -- Team Smile and Nod should be in the running to provide them.”
-Anneli Rufus, author of Party of One, The Farewell Chronicles, and Stuck

“Team Smile and Nod play catchy Latin-spiced electronica-folk that is 50% Ani Difranco, 50% Miami Sound Machine, and 150% political.”
-Nicole J. Georges, zinester, illustrator, and author of Invincible Summer

"It's hard to come up with a fresh and unique sound in this post post-modern world of music, but Team Smile and Nod has managed to do just that.  Their sound is sophisticated, playful, melodic and extremely engaging.  On songs like “Still Stuck" and "They Grow It,” Kara Elizabeth and Rich Ratvasky show their ability to absorb cross generational influences from Everything But The Girl to SMiLE era Beach Boys.  By digesting the atmospheric layering and sonic textures of terrific emo-pop of the past, they have produced an emotionally compelling sound for the future that is distinctly their own.”
-Jon Peterson, Host, "Shakin It" WCBE/Columbus

“…their album, Look Both Ways Before You Die, sounds like the work of seasoned pros. It’s female-fronted electro-pop with an unambiguous agenda for social equality.”
-The Columbus Alive, Sensory Overload Blog, Chris Deville
