The Botticellis The All Music Guide's review of the Botticellis' debut full-length begins by noting that "you'd never know from listening that it took the Botticellis four years to craft their debut album Old Home Movies. It sounds like the work of one sun-soaked late summer afternoon spent playing tunes with friends and family."

Singer and songwriter Alexi Glickman - who is bringing the San Francisco-based quintet to the Capitol Theatre in Davenport on Friday as part of a quadruple bill presented by Daytrotter.com - would be pleased.
