"A strong sense of plain-stated Southern Gothic surrealism helps buoy the themes of loss and redemption infused throughout his work. You've not heard another musician like him."
-Brad Green, "Conversation", Dark Sky Magazine
"Take a healthy dose of John Prine, a dollup of Bringing It All Back Home electric Dylan, a pinch of early Tom Waits, a sprinkle of Charlie Poole, and a splash of Lightin' Hopkinsthe result might be as intriguing as Midwood's first album, Shoot Out at the OK Chinese Restaurant."
-Dustin Ogden, "Gospel Music for Inspired Barflies", No Depression
"[On the track] 'Spinning On This Rock', found on the absolute classic Shoot Out At the OK Chinese Restaurant, Midwood comes on strong, eating vowels like nobody's business with a voice/vibe like Bobby Charles and Link Wray playing Russian roulette in a woodshed."
"[Midwood's] pleasant gurgle of production lends his songwriting an authenticity, like a modern surrealist troubadour."
