here's a mouthful...


WHAT THEY'RE SAYING THESE DAYS... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- "Imagine if X had leaned more heavily towards the blues instead of country. Then you'll start to get the idea of Thee Headliners—a bluesed-up punk sound straight from a dark basement rockabilly club where you squeeze 50 people into the space made for 25."- Benjamin C. Squires, MusicSpectrumReview 5/2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- "Wearing their influences proudly, from pre-rock Americana's folk and country roots to 60's soul, from jazz and murder ballads to garage rock, the band's sound is like a snowball effect of the past 90 years of American music-all rolled into one distortion-heavy package." AP KRYZA-Willamette Week ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- "This Portland, Ore., garage-folk hybrid trio shuffles up and down the AM radio dial circa 1965, alternating between slightly dissonant snorts of rock, R&B, and country. Their new sophomore LP, Rain & Blood (Starcleaner), is chock-full of left-field hooks and strange energy." Greg Beets-AUSTIN CHRONICLE ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- "Their sloppy, soulful second record, Rain & Blood...dredges up the darkest corners of American music, coming up with something that I could call gothi-blues-abilly...when you've got a punk mentality mining the depths of garage, country, and R&B with very blunt instruments, it becomes clear how all these different musical genres are intertwined." NED LANNAMANN-Portland Mercury ---------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------"This record has more twists and turns than a dang rat maze... THEE HEADLINERS play like a band trying to cover a mix tape someone gave them in the late '60s (if tapes were around back then). Rain & Blood is good and if you're into country-influenced DIY rock (can't really call it punk, but that's OK) you should pick it up. (FS)" -MAXIMUM ROCK & ROLL summer/fall 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- "In an ever-popular male-female duo, Holly lays out the drumbeats and JT plays guitars, in a caustic mix of the various genres they love; this includes rockabilly, punk, surf and Americana. Their second full-length, Rain & Blood, out this year on Starcleaner Records, was heralded as a truly strange and glorious hodgepodge of sounds. If only more heart-wrenching breakups led to such musical glory." - Maranda Bish PORTLAND MERCURY 11/26/09 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- "HEADLINERS, THEE:Rain & Blood: CD This is one helluva album. Incorporating all the music genres that I love, Thee Headliners hit all the marks of Americana, invoking catchy elements of blues and country with male and female harmonies. Jeremy's baritone vocals are nearly comical in "Howling at the Moon," which found me doing just that. "Double Dutch" and "SketchCity" veer toward surf and bouncy, high octane garage rock. Just when I thought they wouldn't throw me another curveball, they upped the ante with Holly's soulful, "You Don't Know." All over the map, but good stuff. Recommended." –Kristen K -RAZORCAKE Jan 2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- "The band was first recommended to me, along with Pure Country Gold, at October's Garagefest while discussing local bands to rival the scene in Memphis. Not surprisingly, the best cuts off Rain & Blood are lively dive bar rock n' roll. The gruff JT Halmfilst and powerful Holly Hotbox shout it out over a charging riff on "Sketch City" while the organ bounces on girl group-loving "Uplifter '09" and whirls "Sourpuss" up into a go-going frenzy. Overall, it's a good-timing dance-friendly mix of blues and garage rock." -awmercy, www.quickcritmusic.com
