"Simultaneously modern and retro sounding, this North Carolina vehicle for Amanda Lindsey's bejeweled, almost gothy, but always crisply melodic songs impresses on its debut...Lindsey always keeps the melodies front and center even as her songs take intriguing twists."

- Terry Banks, THE BIG TAKEOVER

"Talented ex-Violet Vector frontwoman Amanda Lindsey appears to have given nobody any reason to rest on their laurels with regards to psychedelia in 2015 as she takes the finer elements of her past and lends them to a beautiful melting of minds with R.E.M. and Game Theory producer Mitch Easter.  The result being  the gritty, attitude-filled, stoner psych-pop of Celestogramme. From the outset, the Purson-esque harpsichord remains a constant through all 10 tracks, but don't be fooled this is a retrospective skip through the folkier elements of the genre. This is attitude from start to finish and by the time you reach the grimy riffing of 'Bos Taurus' you can't help feel but the opener 'Wake Up Tonight' lured your ship onto the rocks- and thankfully so.  This is an album of contrasts, an album crossing decades of genres. And executed beautifully."

-David Savage, SHINDIG MAGAZINE

"In the musical world of Celestogramme, the past & the future collide like a glittering big-bang. Singer, songwriter and mellotron player Amanda Lindsey is a recent graduate of the UNC Chapel Hill archeology & biology programs. These studies spill into her music in unique and unexpected ways. Her debut album Wish Vehicles is filled with songs about literal and metaphorical excavation, ritual, exploration of the earth and the heart, and pop songs that journey deep into the cosmos. "

-Eddie Garcia, WFDD

"It’s been four years since Amanda Lindsey last led Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies, a politely mischievous pop band that was very good at magnetic hooks and complementary outfits. Lindsey’s new project, Celestogramme, pulls back the faders on the niceness to up elements of jagged guitar leads and stoner-rock rhythms. On an excellent two-song cassette issued earlier this by DiggUp Tapes, she worked an unlikely intersection of Kyuss and assorted Phil Spector acolytes for one tune and Deerhoof-like pop hypnosis for another."
