Reviews:

Dark-ish, ambient-ish, psychedellic-y lunarscapes that you can dance on, but only with a zero gravity lumbering gait. –Rocktober Magazine #47, Fall 2009

Marc Arsenault and Joshua Baker come to improvised guitar music from a background in avant-rock bands, and now call themselves Nickname: Rebel and Offset Needle Radius respectively. On Nickname: Rebel Vs Offset Needle Radius they turn in some very credible meandering guitar-scaping episodes full of vast abstractions and intricate scrapey doodles, largely avoiding unpleasant noise or feedback in favour of continuous, real-time playing, only slightly enhanced with foreign-sounding effects and treatments –Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector, February 14, 2010

Experimental – Triptastical Nonstructure Who needs form and void when you can float out into the nether regions of the ether? Imagine the track -IONS- from Tool’s Aenima stretched across an entire album. –Cheshire Cat, WESU FM
