Cheekface, Cheekface, Cheekface. Here we are again as the trio of Greg Katz, Amanda Tannen and Mark Edwards return with another song that knowingly smiles at the bitter-sweet stuff of life. ‘Wedding Guests’ speaks perfectly to the experience of the time we spend between delivery room and funeral home.

Cheekface is a band that appears to have no concern for winning. They simply want to play a beautiful game. The paradox, of course, is that by playing a beautiful game they win. In that regard Therapy Island is a flawless victory.
Fuck you, Cheekface, and your fucking perfect song. Other people should try and write songs as timely as this ‘Here I Was’ because it’s this kind of beauty..
There’s a freshness; a clarity of vision about A Place To Wash My Hands, that demands attention, and volume, and maybe even some new dance moves.
S.T.O.P. B.E.L.I.E.V.I.N.G. – just the kind of natural poetry that makes Cheekface the least contrived, most compelling noisemakers.
A line like this, a device like this, a track like this, makes Cheekface one of the most interesting, moving bands we can dance to, or eat donuts with.
