Tree branch Twig's track The Best Song to End a Dance Mix off the album "7 collages" (June 2012) was reviewed by Pitchfork's Grayson Currin. "It's not actually a dance song... rather, it's a well-considered patchwork of recordings captured at a dinner party... [though] this piece does offer the sort of immersion and escape that your favorite dance mix might, too, presenting a slipstream of sound that earns your focus by constantly revealing and repealing new textures.... It's a space worth revisiting again and again."

DSM Shows Previews: Best of 2015 - Bruce's List
"It was one of those shows that left you reeling with an energy best described as inspiration. You leave feeling the music and taking the vibrations of that music with you. You feel everyone around you ascending to higher levels of vibration as well, and it isn’t ridiculous at all. It’s simple and beautiful and carries a deep meaning that is almost impossible to understand. The experience becomes a sacred one of the kind that are too difficult to describe because of how close it borders to some sort of enlightenment or divine knowledge, always fleeting in nature." - Bruce James Bales for DSM Shows
DSM Shows Previews: Best of 2015 - Casey's List
"Up there hidden away in the racquetball court, enveloped in darkness, the only light emanating from a glaring red bulb, I felt altogether clandestine; a weary traveller finally in the company of fellow survivors who is altogether unsure if he should trust his eyes and ears. I don’t have the requisite level of musical vocabulary to describe what Tree Branch Twig’s music consists of, but suffice it to say if you pass up a chance to see her in 2016 you will be doing yourself a disservice." - Casey Erixon for DSM Shows
Eugene Weekly Preview
“It is music, without a doubt,” Keast concedes to Eugene Weekly. “I was interested solely in how visual elements could be expressed through sound,” she continues. “I want people to listen to it and I want the concept to be accessible, but for it to be first and foremost ‘music’ was not my intention.”
7 Collages is lonely, free-form Erik Satie-style piano musings set against a backdrop of rainy streets, sirens, clicks, tape hiss and ghostly vocals — evocative of a midwinter night scene in Eugene.
