"Namosh mirrors his music on a physical level to the point that it is difficult to separate art from artist. With expressive movements not unlike a silent film actor, a story takes shape through motion as well as sound. He could at times be perceived as a character or persona, were it not for an undercurrent of sincerity and lack of pretense. On his new album "Party Alone" - the follow up to "Music Muscle" (2018), there is a further refinement in production style and intricacy of arrangement. Despite this high level of detail, the album contains a spontaneous, unpredictable quality as well. It is captivating at once, but still takes time to fully evolve and take its place in the subconscious." (Travis Taylor)
