"...Echo Park quartet Wait. Think. Fast. more than make up for their punctuational demands with generous melody and attentive songcraft. The songs are solid without being rigid, and pretty without being cloying. My fave is the breezy, LA-atmospheric "Cien Fuegos," on which Argentinean-born vocalist/keyboardist Jacqueline Santillan floats seductive Spanish over a Beach Boys/Radiohead/Elliott Smith vibe. ..."

— Randall Roberts, LA Weekly, November 2008

"Vuelve al Mar" (Origami) ÔÇô How do you say "dreamy" in Spanish? This intoxicating bit of shimmering shadow-pop (reminds me of the ethereal, folky work of the Golden Palominos in the '90s) serves its metaphysical themes well. Argentinean-born singer-keyboardist Jacqueline Santillan narrates plaintively as holy water turns black, frogs come out at midnight, souls return to the sea and bad luck stalks he who makes bad decisions. And that's just in one song. A couple spins of this disc, produced by Matthew Beighley (the band's guitarist-bassist), and you won't even notice that it's bilingual and you're not.
