Review : Pitchfork gives De La Noche's debut LP a 7.5!
“The record is so consistent with Howard’s other work that it’s surprising to learn that he came on board after it was written and recorded by his old college friends Robert Rogan and Brian Weeks. Rogan and Weeks recorded the De La Noche songs with scratch vocals and sent them to Howard in Portland to see what he thought. Apparently, everyone was so happy with the results that they wound up Postal Servicing the whole thing. With all the tracks already in place, down to Matt Douglas’s blue-steel sax, it’s surprising how organic and integrated it feels. The long friendship and prior collaboration (Weeks was a Rosebud) surely helped breathe life from afar into De La Noche’s sound, and its particular featherlight heft.” - Pitchfork
