THE BIG TAKEOVER: "Spooky Action" review
"....Jason Loewenstein’s playful rocking tendencies have always stood out amongst Lou Barlow’s shy introspection and Eric Gaffney’s bonkers odysseys. Fifteen years after his only other solo full-length, it’s great to see another record chock full of turbo-charged barnburners from the man."
GHETTOBLASTER: "Friday Roll Out" "Spooky Action" review
"Oh dear Lord, after listening to Spooky Action I’m spent. There are 11 proper songs here and the beauty of this album lingers on, long after it ends. Hell yes."
SPILL MAGAZINE: "Spooky Action" review
"An extremely strong album. And a perfect album for the summer. Fans should enjoy and people who may not be familiar with his music give it a chance, he may have a whole new fanbase. One small request, let us not have to wait another 15 years until the next solo album."
SOUNDBLAB: "Spooky Action" review
"...there are at least 100 guitar riffs on this album."
"Spooky Action is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it smash through 12, three minute, not-quite pop songs; played by a man who is more than proficient on all instruments. The writing and playing are difficult enough to interest all fans of 90s Lo-Fi. Jason Loewenstein also has so many ideas, it seems like there are 15 years' worth competing for our attention. A welcome return from an under-rated talent, still reassurringly fecund."
