ABBIE BARRETT AND THE LAST DATE:
In 2008, Barrett released her debut album, Dying Day, which "Performing Songwriter" magazine declared "a stellar first release." The Noise calls Barrett "a bright light among others of her genre...evident through compelling vocals, ever-changing chord progressions, and spontaneous melodies." With no formal musical education, Barrett has been able to craft unique, unconventional arrangements that highlight her smoky voice. Her band, The Last Date, does a wonderful job bringing her vision to the live stage, offering everything from honky-tonk country rock to ambient, brooding anthems. She credits Neil Young, Radiohead, and Fiona Apple as her main influences.
- The Big Takeover
"The massed vocal harmonies in this song off their forthcoming album, The Triples, reminds us of David Crosby's brilliant but now largely forgotten 1971 solo LP If I Could Only Remember My Name jazzed with the proggy propulsive drive of Annie Haslam and Renaissance."The Big Takeover
- Magnet Magazine
"'Here To Stay,' the opener on the new LP, is a pop-driven story of a woman struggling in a world where success depends on standards other than her own. The track bursts with an energy of hopefulness and despair, matching the feelings of the protagonist all along the way."Magnet Magazine
LOVE LOVE and its eponymous debut album is a lush, often darkly passionate mix of vocal-and-lyric-driven '60s and '70s-inspired rock, with two lead voices (Chris Toppin and Jefferson Davis Riordan) blending beautifully.
Hooks, Harmony and Heart. Lush American Rock and Roll.
Residing in the overlap on the Venn Diagram between Alternative, Rock, Powerpop, and Americana, The Rationales bring to mind such acts as Wilco, Radiohead and Nada Surf, while always sounding entirely like themselves.
