Critical acclaim for Mug Museum:

“If there’s any justice, Mug Museum should break Le Bon out of her current cult status”
Uncut – 9/10

“Her third album is as wonderfully weird as any of its predecessors. There’s now sparseness in her music, plus a cool confidence that showcases her knack for the surreal more than ever”
NME – 8/10

“This is music that hovers at the edges of modern life, out of time but in its own glorious world”
Q Magazine – 4 Stars ****

“One of music’s most singular talents, Mug Museum is Le Bon’s best album yet”
Evening Standard – 4 Stars ****

“Mug Museum is a heart-breaking album inspired by the passing of it’s author’s grandmother, yet Cate Le Bon makes it shine with brilliant, childlike wonder”
The Fly – 4 Stars ****

“One of the most characterful voices of recent times”
MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Imagine Tom Verlaine being drafted into the Velvet Underground and you’ve pretty much got the ‘Mug Museum’ sound. Captivating.
Sunday Times

“Drenched into the sunlight of Los Angeles, these songs have been illuminated beyond their darker beginnings into shining jewels, and will surely propel Cate into a different musical league”
Crack – 16/20

“The range of tone is all part of the album’s intriguing appeal. What remains constant is the sheer potency of Le Bon’s distinct ethereal lilt, containing the same sonorous fragility of Nico’s in her Velvet Underground days”
Loud & Quiet – 9/10

“Carmarthenshire’s answer to Nico decamps to LA, but retains her bewitching gothic appeal”
Time Out – 4 Stars ***
