Taken From "The Noise" Issue #212, June 2001 Live Review of T.T. the Bear's Place Performance, 4/28/01 I step into T.T.'s and become immediately captivated by Alchemilla. The three guitarists are laying down a beautiful mesh of melodies over drums and bass that are absolutely perfect. Singer Kathleen Burke steps into every song with a dominance that is solemnly and incredibly easy to get lost within. I notice that the entire club is totally immersed as well. They begin "Crashing," which is my favorite song of the night, and almost the entire crowd has their eyes fixed on Kathleen to watch her pour out every emotion through a truly amazing voice. By the time they finish their set, I really wish they had more time because the songs really shine far above everyone's technical ability and prove that this six-piece is unlike most rock bands here in Boston. This is really tasteful and gorgeous rock music. -Hal Berkstresser-

Taken From The Noise Magazine SAWYER, BABY BOY H, ALCHEMILLA The Middle East 5/10/04 I'm back once again at the Middle East upstairs, and it's a lot less crowded when the Rumble is not here. Alchemilla is playing when I arrive. Holy shit, can this woman ever sing! She's a wailer, bluesy and raw, with a clear, pretty upper register that she moves into occasionally and a scat-singer's sense of melody when she cuts loose, which she does a lot of, and it's awesome. The rest of the band is really good:great rhythm section, with involved and involving bass lines and steady, supple drumming. (Steve G)

ALCHEMILLA, DIN, WORDS FOR SNOW T.T. the Bear's 5/25/04 Alchemilla are up last.I cannot get enough of their singer; she has a phenomenal voice, and she just WAILS! A little bit jazzy, a little bit bluesy, a little bit rootsy, and a whole lotta rock. There are also three guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer, all are good...overall the feel is high-energy roots rock, and she's usually singing. Bending notes, dancing around the melody, howling and growling and kicking my ass. (Steve Gisselbrecht)
