"She doesn’t come across like a singer-songwriting whose dying to fit in with the trends or fill some sort of cultural niche — and I like that about her. I like the way her songs come off as a manifestation of a time, place and scene only imagined by a sole creator to be extrapolated out in sound to listeners at large. It’s mood music through and through, equal parts other worldly, mature and serene." - LEARNING LOVE SONGS

"The lush soundscapes she composes on VINE are so detailed and melodic that it’s hard to believe the entire album was recorded in her bedroom. The album touches on nearly as many genres as there are songs on it, but the overarching sound would best be labelled as dream pop." - SUMMER SPINS

“VINE is a solid piece of effort that is brand new just released this year, so it is fairly new just as Jen is to the music scene. While she may have been around for some time, her music is barely just getting the kicks out of it, for all those out there to hear it. She has a mind set and the skills to follow through on it, ready to go. Her music is crafty, fun, and edgy at times, yet keeps the gloomy yet doom feeling steady and on top of the music being portrayed outward." SKOPE MAGAZINE

"Vine is a daring record, intellectual and challenging in all the right ways." RAINBOW EXOTIC MUSIC

"Very impressive" - THE HIPPO ("A" rating)

"What is fascinating about Jen Gloeckner’s new album “Vine”, is that from minute one, track one, I could not stop listening and before I knew it, I had played the album all the way through on the first listen – proof enough for me that this album is worth your time." - GET TO THE FRONT (Review by: Alan Neilson)

"She comes from the United States and has been on the radar since 2004 with her first album "Miles Away" on the label One Little Indian Records which earned her a mini-consecration. More than a decade later, the musician presents "Vine", a new opus intoxicating. Between electronica, trip-hop and experimental folk, Jen Gloeckner blurs the tracks with an ethereal, overwhelming and quasi-surrealist universe. A sensory experience that everyone should try especially listening to throbbing plays like "Vine", "Breathe" and other "Ginger Ale". Through these eleven titles, including a disturbing instrumental called "Firefly (War Dance)", the American opens the doors of her intimacy with her dreary song and dazzling sound textures that are palpated impeccably as on "Blowing Through" , Counting Sheep "or" Colors ". A third album to savor like good wine." - CULTURAL EFFLORESCENCE

"Jen Gloeckner convinces with Vine on the whole line. Compliment!" - Musik an sich (19/20 stars)
