Causers of This received generally positive reviews, Metacritic reports a rating of 71% based on 18 critical reviews.

Pitchfork media's Joe Colly stated that "Bundick embraces a cleaner and mellower sound that's more indebted to hip-hop. He wears his inspirations proudly, and throughout there's a clear nod to producers like J Dilla and Flying Lotus."[6]

Indie Shuffle's Jason Grishkoff noted that "[Causers of This] will slot comfortably into your record collection next to contemporaries such as Small Black, Washed Out, Gold Panda and Neon Indian – artists from all around the world who, intended or not, are coming out with markedly similar musical results."[7]
