“déCollage’s Aliveness captures the absolute delirious wonder of realizing when you are alive. You may ask, “Well, what’s it like to be alive?” As vocalist, instrumentalist, and producer Reed Fox seems to define it, "we all gush aliveness.” Aliveness gushes with imaginative energy from every possible pore. Simply by listening to it, we are dragged into its contagious and swirling vortex where we access our own aliveness.” ~ Chris Lott {Wall of Ears}

“The album slithers through a maze of exotic mirages, pulling your mind in new directions while saturating you with deep rhythmic interplay. Ever mutating, the music calls up many different genres (whimsical anime soundtracks, tropical calypso, Berlin dance club banger, the moment when you beat the level in an 8-bit Nintendo game) but its originality prevents it from being reduced to any genre. Adrian Wright’s expressive drum grooves make the energy fluid and flexible even through zany polyrhythms and breakbeat moments. Ben Weirich’s soaring synth melody and bass lines are surprising and captivating, with seemingly effortless delivery. Like a big budget sci-fi film, Fox and Weirich’s production sounds so high def and clear that it feels like 4K gamma rays are being beamed into your blood. At times the music sounds like it’s ripping itself apart and turning itself inside out. As warped as the music gets, it never loses its immediate danceability and pop-gem feel. This music is an absolute party of human experience and makes you want to get wild and fling your limbs around in whatever way you want to. Reed Fox is always there to ground you through the flux, with his charismatic vocals acting as a goofy guide through the maze of imaginative weirdness.” ~ Chris Lott {Wall of Ears}

“The songs flow in a cohesive and rushing parade, stitched together with “behind the scenes” studio chatter and beep-blop wizardry. By the time the record is over (sadly) and you ooze back into your senses, you feel like you’ve been through a tremendous psychedelic transformation... like you got datamoshed through the rainbow singularity. We’ve all been there. It’s no wonder that Impose Magazine called déCollage the “grandchildren of Elephant 6”, and that the band shared the stage with of Montreal, Dan Deacon, Animal Collective and Deerhoof.  déCollage has created permanent sound installations for Meow Wolf and operates Moon Magnet Studios, where Aliveness was born. This music could only be created by Reed Fox and his mad scientist musician friends in the creative community they’ve been cultivating in Denver for the past 13 years. Aliveness is a unified vision shared by brilliant in-sync musicians pushing themselves to the outer limits of avant-pop.” ~ Chris Lott {Wall of Ears}
