NPR : “I think that Dressy Bessy is a far more efficient pleasure-machine than Coldplay. If Chris Martin's voice is earnest and thoughtful, Tammy Ealom's tone is every bit as knowledgable about the vagaries of love and lost and so much more varied and witty in its expression." – Ken Tucker

Rolling Stone : “Denver's Dressy Bessy are devo-tees of the same kind of retropop sound as Apples in Stereo and the New Pornographers, a hook-y, Sixties-derived jangle filtered through a knowing indie-rock sensibility.” - Christian Hoard

Daytrotter : “A Dressy Bessy song isn’t one without three very important components. First, it must actively enable or invite rump shaking, Ealom is about many more things – fashion, a good smoke and exclamation points. Second, it must rely on straight-up, fuck ‘em all moxie that you get studying the bad guys in old-time Westerns or watching Kate Hepburn own her leading men. Thirdly, they absolutely must give off a glow of older climes. It must feel transported from the cream-colored pages of old Life magazines or Saturday Evening Posts. She’s of a vintage blueprint and when she brings guitarist John Hill (also of The Apples In Stereo), drummer Craig Gilbert and bassist Rob Greene into the folds, they make a sound that’s aged and cured, but sweaty so you know it’s alive.” - Sean Moeller
