"I've been playing this one track that I've found recently that I've become kind of obsessed with (Restaurant Blast). Kinda fallen in love with it... I'm smitten by it. Just going to keep playing it to you." - Tom Ravenscroft, BBC 6 Music

"Top albums of 2013." - 3WK Underground Radio

"2013's finest tracks." - Music Like Dirt

"Best releases of 2013" - Against the Odds

"Wonderful new music from UK singer/songwriter Matthew Thomas Dillon. Windmill has been a favorite of mine since his 2007 debut Puddle City Racing Lights and he continues to enchant with this new LP, which is full of his unique brand of sweeping, whimsical indie pop. “Jelly Globe” is an early favorite but pick any track from the album and you’re sure to be captivated." - Music for Ants

"...every Windmill album is a little piece of musical genius. And Above Duffle Farm is no different. Elegantly beautiful, sophisticated and emotional, the new album is both heart-warming and strangely addictive. Windmill is and always will be one of my favorite contemporary British artists. His musical ingenuity and talent are unparalleled and his every album provides the listener with a unique musical experience." - Against The Odds

"'Above Duffle Farm' in essence sounds like a labour of love, a painstaking one at that. There are stunning and complex lullaby-like songs such as 'Restaurant Blast', 'Jelly Globe' and the playful 'Rocket Needs'. The more sombre 'Frozen Embryos' is a powerful highlight that shows off that emotion that Dillon can convey. 'Above Duffle Farm' is pretty difficult to fault." - The Sound of Confusion

"He deals with modern life and the anxiety and sadness that seems prevelant in young people. Maybe it’s the illusions cast by social media, where everyone but you has an exciting and action packed life. Maybe it’s the increasing worship of material things. Maybe it’s just we all think too much. Whatever it is, Windmill captures it and makes it into something both recognisable and beautiful." - Wake the Deaf

"Wonderfully warped experimental pop from Windmill, the project of Matthew Dillon of the UK. At once fucked up, exuberant, poignant and hugely imaginative, this is impossible to pin down. I'm going to listen to it again." - Bandcamp Hunter

"Above Duffle Farm is full of marvels to discover. Consistently surprising...
For little more than a cup of coffee, you’ll have a record that will probably still be listened to a decade from now." - The Midnight Wire

"Underrated for too long, the new release from Windmill deserves attention." - Electric Sound of Joy
