“Sweet, sharp indie rock from PA’s Sara Renberg reflects the fluidity of queer identities & relationships through personal storytelling.” – Bandcamp New & Notable

“Renberg’s writing is as impressive as ever, approaching deep personal feelings and epiphanies with a sense of playful, deadpan poetry that you might expect from Malkmus or Berman.”  – Various Small Flames

“Scrappy, jangly, lo-fi with equal parts abrasive Palehound attitude and bedroom-pop warmth, swathed in life’s minutiae.” – Janglepophub

“literate, incisive, and charmingly-wry.” – The Autumn Roses


“Lyrically it really shines, Sara walking the similarly mundane-surreal tight-rope perfected by the likes of Frankie Cosmos and The Mountain Goats […] A wry observer of the minutiae that make life both crushing and beautiful” – For the Rabbits

“Borrowing equally from the diary-like intimacy of bedroom pop acts like Frankie Cosmos or Free Cake For Every Creature, and the deadpan sardonic humour of the Silver Jews or the Mountain Goats, Renberg spins stories of advancing into adulthood proper, tales that are equal parts funny, wistful and tender.”
Various Small Flames

“[T]here exists something that immediately makes her music familiar, as if you’ve been listening to her for years. Perhaps it’s the fact that Sara seems like she’s having a great time just writing the songs, maybe even cracking little jokes to herself as she pens the lyrics.” – Nathan Lankford, Austin Town Hall

“Sara Renberg’s low-fi indie rock is straightforward, simple, and fun […] I wish I could quote the whole album.” – Autostraddle


“[Antiquated Future’s] best release yet […] Absurdist, deadpan, charming, witty.”
K records mailer

“If released a decade and a half ago, indiepop bible Chickfactor would have been all over The Tall Calm. Sliding between deadpan and expressive, Portland-based Sara Renberg has an observational honesty and surrealness that reminds me of early Magnetic Fields and Stephen Malkmus.” – Chiara Grassia, BMA Mag
