"Brooklyn based songwriter and composer Carly Commando drops her first effort on the indie stalwart label Deep Elm, a different release for a label so well known for driving, guitar oriented indie rock, yet it still encompasses the heartfelt and genuine spirit the Deep Elm catalog represents. Comprised of achingly beautiful piano ballads, 'One Take' is a collection of timeless solo instrumentals that are emotive and outpouring. Painting cathartic and ebullient soundscapes via cascading ebbs of sincere and moody piano balladry, Comando draws the listener in immediately, captivating from beginning to end. Amazingly, this was all recorded in one take, too (hence the album title)." - go211
"Lovely piano music from the Brooklyn solo artist. As the title suggests, the ten instrumentals were recorded in one take, creating an album that feels organic and free-flowing, as well as evocative, melancholy, uplifting in short, everything you¹d hope for from such a record." - In Forty
