"this music was made in California but it entered my life by force while i was living in the midwest at the end of the 1980s. it is not a summer record, even though guitarist/songwriter charlie baldanado is clearly a desciple of the beach boys pet sounds-era guitar tapestry. it's really beautiful stuff, the guitar work i mean, lots of lush 12-string accoustic through a roland stereo amp. the day after i saw them the first time, i lay in bed with jill at her house on 13th street in lincoln, kind of drifting in and out of sleep on a gusty, dark gray winter day and just listening to this record over and over. jenny homer's singing will slither through your dreams after you've heard it -- her every note seems charged, a velvety, longing sound -- i fell in love with it and her. she stood center stage, long brown hair, skirt, black knee socks -- a real beauty and she belts it out. anyway, BROOMTREE is one of the most important records in my collection. i feel lucky to have found such a beautiful soundtrack to a very intense time in my life, and whenever i listen to it, it brings me right back."

"This is not just my favorite album from mildew, it is one of my favorites from the past 20 yrs since it was released. their music brings me back to a memorable time in my life during my college years in the late 80s/early 90s. i remember borrowing this album from a friend in '87 and mail ordering from their label texas hotel to get my own piece of vinyl. Everybody's Gone and The Kitchen are some of my favorite songs of all time that are on this album."
