Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, March 1998

FIRMLY IN the tradition of orch-pop mavericks like Scott Walker and Jimmy Webb, Plush caused a minor commotion three years ago with the Drag City single 'Three Quarter Blind Eyes' b/w 'Found A Little Baby'. Released here by Domino in January 1995, it was widely hailed in the music press as a timewarped masterwork a la Gideon Gaye. With its mellotrons and musty echoes of Badfinger and Brian Wilson, it chimed perfectly with records such as the first Cardinal album.
