Cain (Houndstooth compilation, 2018) « Cain by Otto Lindholm with its tortured voices and shards of cello, is like William Blake soundtracked by Arthur Russell » Stephen Worthy for MOJO « The set opens with Otto Lindholm’s Cain – all Ligeti / Xenakis style doom and dirge and cooling solar flares – and it sets a twilight tone that gratifyingly never lifts » Neil Kulkarni / The Wire
