"There’s an easy way and a hard way to make a synth-pop album in the 21st century. The easy way, of course, would be to embrace the genre’s synthetic origins and record and release the entire project digitally. One-woman synth act Stacian—a.k.a. Milwaukee’s Dania Luck—elects for the hard way. Stacian’s new Songs For Cadets was first recorded on a four-track cassette recorder, and then transferred to a computer for final editing and release on Moniker Records. That extra analog step may seem like a case of working harder and not smarter, but it lends Cadets an unexpected—and welcome—DIY warmth."- The AV Club

"A very unique act, the three piece’s drum machine and synthesiser-driven brand of experimental pop manages to eschew comparisons for the most part. There’s a little Siouxsie Sioux in the vocals, and a little of the ‘always on the precipice of popularity’ Chromatics-style electronica in the grooves, but the downright fun and mature pop sensibilities hidden amongst the initially abrasive songs are utterly unique." -
