"The Autumn Rhythm craft haunting, minimalist songs of blissful sorrow -- music that truly wears its heart on its sleeve. Their honest, understated melodies are punctuated by Valerie Allen's lush vocals in a style that has been described by The Village Voice as 'intimate, narcotic, and surprisingly mature.' The Autumn Rhythm have further garnered comparisons to the Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500, Ida and Cat Power. Secret Songs offers an irresistibly sad and dreamy collection of pop songs with a powerful female lead. Albums this moving don't come along very often and we're sure you'll agree that this is a stunning debut from a promising young band."
