WORD GOT OUT  just received 4 stars in ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE today. Reviewed by the editor in chief himself, Matt Coyte:

“Darren Cross tried on a lot of different hats during his time with indie-rockers Gerling; lo-fi pop, caterwauling punk, propulsive dance and even a song with Kylie. Which makes it all the more refreshing to hear him delivering a collection of songs that are single-minded in their intent. Word Got Out, the first album from this project with singer Jessica Cassar, falls confidently into a gothic folk mould, with the duo’s very different vocals building huge mountains of sound over a sparse bed of acoustic guitar and the odd distant cymbal crash. Non-Americans rarely do this type of thing well, but Jep and Dep, like Bonnie “Prince” Billy or 16 Horsepower, sound like genuine hillbillies”

Thanks Rolling Stone, this is bloody awesome.
