"Zedek's fourth solo album (and third on Thrill Jockey). It further cements Zedek's position as a bandleader, a songwriter, and as a pioneer who, like Kim Gordon, Kim Deal, Lydia Lunch, and Patti Smith, paved the way for so many others. On Via, Zedek presents a collection of songs that range from the harrowing to the heartfelt. The opener 'Walk Away' is a triumphantly melancholic exploration of living with ghosts, with Zedek's richly emotive voice augmented by David Michael Curry's gravelly viola and Mel Lederman's measured piano. Via also features some of Zedek's noisiest material in some time. Halfway through 'Want You To Know,' Zedek's guitar erupts into a wash of fuzz, foreshadowing the climax of pounding drums and psychedelic soloing. Via is an album about recovery, loyalty, chance, and gratitude: universal themes that become stirring in Zedek's hands."
