“…these Austinites play dreamy pop with enough rock muscle behind it to keep from evaporating in the hot Texas sun. Front woman Lauren Green’s echo-drenched guitar shredding sounds something like Neil Young playing live from the bottom of a well.”

“…smolders with post-punk aggression, but there’s also something narcotic about it.”

“…warm, smooth vocals are offset by throbbing percussion and guitar-driven melodies for a result that sounds a little like the lovechild of Asobi Seksu and Blouse. The album is fuzzy garage-pop at its finest, perfect for foggy fall days like this one.”

“…if you’re looking for the best Pile has to offer, the album graciously gives listeners that right at the start…"The Ghosts That Wake You” is a propulsive and wiry tune that’s agile enough to shift gears gracefully and has its shows of musical force ably abetted by Lauren Green’s unfettered belting. It makes the sort of first impression that quickly leads to a second and third one, and hopefully a quick web search to purchase some of the group’s offerings.“

“A stylish fusion of heavy garage rock and indie guitar pop capped with Green’s warm, melodic vocals, Mexico may be long-overdue as a debut disc, but it’s entirely worth the wait.” 

AUSTIN CHRONICLE, [full article]

“Their loose, grungey rock sounds as if it was dreamed up in a galaxy far many miles from here though, with Lauren Green’s vocals possessing an  otherworldly quality to them that is likely to draw comparisons to Cat Power.” 
The Fly, [full article]

“Mexico finds the band sharpening their jangly garage pop on a psychedelic edge.”
