“Brilliant… A modern soundtrack to city life—an aural survival pack that pulls out moments of delicate beauty from all the s**t and cacophony. Don’t leave home without it.” - MOJO
“Sonic layers, classical elements, pieces that seem unfinished, no guitars - and somehow it all works.”
- Los Angeles Times
“The avant-classical Rachel’s is our connection to beauty, to clarity and simplicity, to warmth that radiates from a single gesture.” - Magnet
“Undeniable power and grace” - Pitchfork
Avant-garde chamber group Rachel's present the vinyl debut of their last full-length album systems/layers on Quarterstick Records.

Packaged in a gatefold album jacket with printed inner sleeves, designed and layed out by Louisville native Jeremy deVine (of Temporary Residence fame).
