"Deeply satisfying and insistently smart yet emotional, Missing Sibling's Commiserate sounds like a record that would fit in nicely with an elite group of albums such as, the Pixie's Doolittle or Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation."
"Missing Sibling is a Texas-based indie / noise pop outfit with an added element of pure pop sensibilities that give off a whiff of – nobody has ever typed this before but sure fuck it – Sleater-Kinney meets Bruce Hornsby. Seriously!"
"On tunes like “Beg and Borrow” and “Time Flows Away,” Gabbert and Walker’s commingled boyish vocals grab the spotlight. At first. Then your attention is drawn toward the runaway percussion and the playful way they interact with some discordant piano or guitar line. While full of hooks, the songs on Commiserate pull you in a little deeper by making you think of the ways the musical parts do and don’t fit together. They make for a more intellectually interactive experience than your typical garage-inspired pop-rock platter."
"Highlights abound on Commiserate — Equal Strength is a stunner, while the mid-tempo Beg and Borrow evokes a less grumpy Pixies — leaving you wanting more of this new, super-sized Sibling."
