"Life Like sees the band strip down to its core of bass, drums and guitars. Gone are the electronic flourishes, the sampling and studio experimentation of previous outings; the Joan Of Arc of Life Like are a taut rock outfit, with no time for messing around."

"The point being: Tim Kinsella and co. seem much more interested in crafting aurally pleasing songs on Boo! Human instead of being the weirdly caustic anti-firebrands of something or another."

The first of several high-flying conceptual works to come from the JOAN OF ARC compound is a eminently eclectic affair – organic and electronic, ironic and earnest, familiar, yet wholly irregular. It’s a balance that allows this Chicago-based group to walk on the fringe without being swallowed by it.

- 3. Anne Aviary
- 4. Let's Wrestle

"Almost 10 years after its release, How Memory Works remains as Tim Kinsella's most impressive effort and a near-perfect fusion of pretty, subdued indie rock with electronic ideas."

It’s not really a live album, but it’s certainly an experience. Four months of studio time culminate in thirteen interwoven tracks that ultimately find Tim Kinsella’s inceptive lyrical style and primarily acoustic backdrop breathing comfortably alongside the band’s well-documented fetish for electronic embellishment.

Written, Recorded, and Edited at home over an intense two week period in isolation meditating on a Pinecone, Pine Cone is a (mostly) instrumental sonic analogy of the form of a Pinecone.
