"I have to say that this is a pleasantly weird EP by Mitchell Manburg, reminding me in parts of King Crimson’s early 80s era or other progressive rock bands of the time period."
-Rudy Carrera, Music You Need to Hear
"Fyra vackra platoniska låtar som sträva rut mot yttre vintergatans svepande rörelse och formationer. En skiva värdig av sväva omkring Jupiters omkrets."
Translation: Four beautiful platonic songs that strive for the sweeping movement and formations of the outer Milky Way. A disk worthy of hovering around Jupiter's circumference.

“Four self composed tracks and 18 minutes of guitar-based music is what can be heard on the EP ‘Laplace Resonance’, the debut album from Oakland based songwriter and guitar player Mitchell Manburg. His musical history in a folkrock band and in an electro-soul group can still be reflected in these four pieces.“
"Deze "Laplace Resonance" is een EP met daarop 4 tracks. Het futuristisch aanvoelende "I-5 and the Skies" is de opener gevolgd door het story tellende "At What Cost". Met "Headlights" komt Mitchell uit bij een nummer dat onder de noemer populair valt om daarna weer te eindigen in een vlaag van nog te ontdekken plaatsen, Laplace Resonance."
Translation: This "Laplace Resonance" is an EP containing 4 tracks. The futuristic-feeling "I-5 and the Skies" is the opener followed by the story-telling "At What Cost". With "Headlights" Mitchell arrives at a song that falls under the heading of popularity, only to end in a flurry of yet-to-be-discovered places, Laplace Resonance.
"Laplace Resonance” is unusual release, judging by presented stylish options. It is vocally narrative music, where sound dimension touches elements of psychedelic, space rock, ambient, and many things in-between. It’s hard to locate his works and songs in any specific music era, past, present or possible future, but he has offered his own vision and view, mostly specific, and at the same time – why should not say, original."
"Guitar teacher, singer-songwriter Mitchell Manburg from California paints beautiful landscapes with his stringed instruments, adds his synth soundscapes and in the meantime also dares to pose a few questions. Short EP but intense and mindfucking good."
-Marino Serdons, Keys and Chords Belgium
"Yet there I was (and here I still am) staying grounded in my practice and writing. Slowly my scales and free-writes turned into ideas, then drafts, and then songs. The act of making this EP got me through that difficult time and I am so grateful for that."

"Life is the greatest thing in and of itself – music (and art) is an honest way of capturing and sharing that experience. I am most proud not of any one accomplishment, but to just be “doing it” period."
- Interview with Voyage LA, 8/20/2019
"The band acknowledges the world in its topsy turvy state, and has issued a vaccine in the form of this five-track album. As soon as I fired it up, I could feel the tight knots in my muscles unwind . . . Case Hop Tally definitely grabbed a hold of my heart with this one. I'm gonna go ahead and put it high on my 'must listen' list, especially if you're someone who needs their mind to shut the hell up once in a while."
