The Olivia Tremor Control...

Phil McMullen, Ptolemaic Terrascope, January 1996

ROLL THE NAME around your mind a while and try to imagine what they sound like, and whatever you come up with I guarantee you'll be way off the mark and yet remarkably close at one and the same time, because here we have a band so startlingly diverse, brilliantly imaginative and at once satisfyingly traditional that they are quite capable of being all things to all people.
