What people said about El Perro Del Mar: ''Both dramatic and playful, the result sounds lovably gentle and impeccably crafter: Assbring conveys vulnerability and pain without histrionics. A sweetly simple, gorgeous song, ''God Knows (You Gotta Give To Get)'' captivates with subtle emotions and few words.'' -- NPR ''Enthralling folk-pop from Gothenburg, Sweden. Everything about Sarah Assbring is intriguing, from her promotional photographs - prim school ma'am with a Chihuahua perched on her knee - to her brittle marriage of 60's girl-group sounds with muted tones. Four stars'' - Uncut. ''A minimal Phil Spector sound. Unique and magical'' - The London Times. ''Heartbreak and loneliness have never been so beautiful'' - Word Mag. ''Mixing tears with sugary sound effects, she wallows with Scandinavian style.'' --The New York Times '' * * * * Genuinely Uplifting'' -- Uncut '' * * * * Unique and magical'' -- The London Times ''unlike anything else around'' -- Esquire 8.1 - ''Achingly genuine'' -- Pitchfork (''God Knows'' included in Pitchfork's Top 100 tracks of 2006).
