"A rich, courageous new album...‘The Navigator’ repositions roots music as an anti-nostalgic tool: a truth-telling device” – NPR 

 

“Segarra’s howl is a gigantic fuck-you to those who’d write off her pain, and one that electrifies the most hair-raising two minutes of music of this young year” – Pitchfork, Best New Track (“Pa’lante”)

 

“A coming of age concept LP about a young woman that suggests Patti Smith as a barrio poet...this is proudly intersectional folk music” - Rolling Stone, 4 stars
