Reviews for Two Weeks of Spring:
"Two Weeks of Spring is, by all means, an upstanding example of the fiercely unique Montreal indie scene. Blending everything from blues, experimental, and desert rock to psychedelia, the album stands as a testament to the fact that the alliance between these two gentlemen and their friends should be neither underestimated, nor ignored." Jordan Hodgins
"Two Weeks Of Spring was recorded live and improvised and that shines through; it has a natural flow and spontaneity that is refreshing in this day and age of overdubs, over-production and ‘cut'n'paste’ recording techniques. The level of musicianship is equalled only by the level of imagination and the distillation of global reference points. It is an album that brings new meaning to the word 'soundscape’… a work of consumate skill and beauty."
"Pachyderm is one of those eclectic, magical and other worldly creations of sound you almost can’t believe you’re listening to . . . Ten beautifully crafted and flowing songs that take you to different parts of the world so realistically I could swear I heard the sizzle of the desert sands under the instruments." Jessica Abou
"Pachyderm’s mastery is such that you get the sense that they are going to create magic every time they pick up their instruments. Judging by ‘Two Weeks of Spring’, they are quite capable of doing just that." Mark Anthony Brennan
