**** Sunday Times (London)
... Bounce Around is rather glorious. Kaye Woodward’s songs are pretty, delicate pop numbers that, for the most part, float over chiming guitars. From time to time – notably on Big Blue Sky – the band reveal an ability to chug along in a more muscular rock fashion, while Wintersweet and Coppice hint at the Velvet Underground’s (third album) sound.
****1/2 Vicki Anderson, The PRESS. 25/01/2008
“ This is a gorgeous collection of pop songs, so bright and fresh you can practically see them sparkle ... dizzying layers of guitars, keyboards and even a charango, this is simply a joy to listen to ... Pure pretty pop with passion.”
“ I've been listening to these songs all night and I'm just in love with them - they're literate, warm and jangly, which is everything that made Flying Nun bands so legendary back in the 80s.”
“ Charming, melodic and upbeat pop that will bring sunshine to your ears.”
Gavin Bertram, Real Groove, Feb 2008
.. these songs fly on delicate wings ..there are some lovely songs to be found here. From New Broom’s skiffley melodies, Wintersweet’s minor key confection, to the soaring Big Blue Sky, Woodward’s voice and the assured playing is highly infectious”.

EPs and live gig reviews
The intoxicating perfume of Wintersweet in bloom, Matariki (Maori New Year), a mid winter soltice treat, dancing hearts, dancing feet - Minisnap are playing at the Dux de Lux on Friday 17th June 2005.
After success with steady national and international internet sales of their first 2 EP's, "In My Pocket" and "March Hare", Minisnap are finally recording their first album over the next few weeks of the winter new year.
“"What can I say about Minisnap other than ah, Heaven. Beautiful complete songs. Kaye's voice, pure and childlike carries over the warm, clear guitar lines and textures, steady-as-a-rock drums and the distinctive bass sound of Mr Kean"
