"Like a modern-day Woody Guthrie, Bloch rattles through 16 songs filled with wry observations about life, love and hugging trees. While tapping into the DNA of the great American songwriters, Bloch delivers something fresh, vital, uncluttered, brilliant ...and cheap." - The Sun, UK
"An exceptional songwriter...highly narrative country songs in the style of Hank Williams with an absurdist wit and mordant melancholy that recall Gary Larson cartoons. These sound like Alan Lomax's ancient field recordings, albeit with bathetic contemporary references - and all are utterly remarkable." - *****UNCUT March, UK
"Picture John Galiiano dressed as a cowboy, that Emit Bloch. I think He's brilliant" - Lauren Laverne, BBC6
"Despite the ultra low-fi approach it's instantly clear that Bloch has the balls and the songwriting talent to pull this one off. Dictaphones Vol. 1 is far from amateurish and at times could easily be mistaken for a brilliant Woodstock-era bootleg straight from the bottom of a beatnik's backpack." - Music OMH, UK
'This talismanic new country singer is dragging country music kicking and screaming into the 21st Century' - Fresh Deer Meat, UK
