HEADLINERS, THEE: Rain & Blood: CD

Jan 12, 2010

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.
