A gifted creator… New England’s top new talent… The man wears his heart on his sleeve and much of the magic ends up on the records here. Cyclops is the new one and here we find the best sound of the two, it’s a fantastic example of isolationist creativity. Von Stetten proves, time and again, he is his own man… New England has a prolific genius on its hands and his name is Kurt von Stetten.

Cyclops hits the right notes, pushes the right buttons and becomes near and dear to the heart
— Music Savage
The album deepens with each listen, and I’ve very much enjoyed hearing it again and again.
— Music Savage (best of 2011)
Bursts with unparalleled joy and spontaneity; it is packed with wonderfully quirky, restlessly melodious guitar pop that recalls indie rock’s best moment in a playful and condensed mishmash.
— The Owl Mag
A fearless solo act.
Cyclops is an aural feast not to be overlooked. This is probably the coolest thing I’ve heard in the last several months! This is destined to be your new favorite album.

Kurt definitely can not be genre defined. If you come up with one, well then shit, he’s sitting alone in it. But with the amount of aural pleasure that’s coming from that genre, I’m sure it’s not much of a lonely place.
Somewhere between hypnotic and epic.
