"[...] a stunning eight-track, 42-minute guitar opus, complete with ethereal ambience, warm washes of droning fuzz and the occasional stab of piercing feedback. For his first complete effort, he’s succeeded in presenting a rich, fully formed tableau."
-Josiah Hughes, FFWD Weekly
"[...] roams from Thurston-y guitar stunt-work to Birchville Cat Motel sunburnt drone to Oren Ambarchi’s electro-acoustic pitter-patter to the slow, haunting expanse of late-period Earth. Even some finger-picking in there, too. Bitter Fictions kinda goes to every place a modern solo “experimental” guitar record can go, but it hops around without seeming jittery or uncomfortable. More like one guy (in this case, Devin Friesen) just working out a series of interesting compositions and letting the chips fall where they may. To quote Borat: ‘very nice!’”
-M.K., Yellow Green Red
"[...] eight patient and slow-burning pieces for chiming guitars, stochastic piles, negative space, extended technique, needles and pins, dense haze, ringing tones and expansive drones. Unpredictable, but not frenetic: one man’s love affair with feedback, documented with the discerning expertise of when to dog-pile sounds and when to let them breathe."
