ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Formed in 2001, Anabret has been compared to Radiohead, The Smiths, and Coldplay. You can hear elements of all those groups in the band's lush and atmospheric songs, but anabret has a sound all its own.

The four-piece band is based in Seattle. They are as tight on stage as they are on their recent five-song debut release. The record has won widespread praise in print and online.

Anabret's songs are instantly memorable. Guitars, bass and drums create the textures and rhythms for the singer's rich and powerful voice. The music has a swirling, layered quality, but remains rooted in one engaging melody after another. Reviewers have said: "These guys just drip talent, making beautiful, moving, introspective rock."

Anabret recently played KEXP 90.3's "Live Room", broadcast to the Seattle Metro area, receiving rave reviews from the listening audience and staff alike. KEXP, the sister radio station of Seattle's Experience Music Project, is home to the "Live Room", an hour-long showcase focusing on one band's live material.

Not long after, the SeattlePI.com named Anabret as one of the area's most promising up & coming bands.

Lora, co-creator of the Coldplay fansite www.hotandcoldplay.com, writes:
"A relative newcomer, Anabret are a Seattle based band with a style, depth, and talent rarely seen in bands with so short a history...if you're lucky enough to be in the Seattle area, see them live."

The Georgia Straight, Vancouver B.C.'s premier local music paper, says Anabret "captures a three dimensional sound, with atmospheric and moody songwriting".

FOX Television's drama "John Doe" featured Anabret's song "The Coming Night", in one of the last episodes. The episode put Anabret's music into national exposure, and the reaction was overwhelming. The song is available on their recently released CD Single "Thoughts Dividing".

Seattle Hound

The Only Seattle Band That Matters
Pure and simple, this CD will be one that your friends will say they bought before anyone else had it...yeah right they did! Moving lyrics, Incredible vocals, soaring layers of guitars, sublime bass & drums...Anabret's debut EP leaves the listener in awe. Clearly Seattle's best kept secret...but for how long?

like night driving in the city
I love night drives, especially coming into a big city. The lights always dazzle me. While on break one spring in college, a friend and I took his Volkswagen Rabbit and made our way to his house in... oh, hell, it was in south Washington. I want to say Shelton. I'm pretty sure that was it. We went through Portland to get there, and as we were passing through I had the greatest feeling. It was comfortably warm outside and we had all the windows rolled down. The smells of spring, the warmth and the lights all made me realize that I was in love with the Northwest.


The first I heard of Anabret was at the end of the premiere episode of John Doe. I went to Fox's website and they had an area for the show and samples of the soundtrack. I downloaded the .mp3 that was on the episode page and then proceeded to Anabret's website.


I wasn't listening to Anabret while we were driving through Portland, but after listening to the EP it was the first thing that I thought of. Riding through the city. The warmth, the lights and the sounds. Those same feelings I had then were reminded me in this music.

Thanks for the memories, guys!

Great sound with a twist!
Anabret sound is like no other sound, genuine and totally different from all other crap you hear on the radio each day. A “kick as journey” for your soul and mind.

Hot & Coldplay

Deep, honest, and soulfully delivered.
From the first moments one slips anabret's CD into their player, the listener is engaged. There is more to do than listen... you experience the music as a full ethereal soundscape, with lyrics so smart and memorable that they play on in your head long after the music is ended. Anabret is a new band with the drive and ambition that goes along with it, yet their talent and depth shine in songs that already reflect their mastery of passion and precision. You won't find the unfinished or unsophisticated nature of songs that so often populate debut works. Instead we ride pulsing rhythms with ecstatic crescendos. Then we line up to ride again...

Something that shouldn't be missed
Anabret has managed to find a sound that shows their influences in a subtle way, while breaking new ground not only for Seattle, but anywhere. They're keeping true to the modern edge of music, while displaying a keen sense of the past. Not at all re-hashed, but fresh and vibrant. Engaging lyrics and guitar work, and polished original bass/drum/rhythm section work keep everything moving. Forget everything that you think the Seattle Sound is, and find Anabret.

Plain, simple, rock-awesomeness
The style of Anabret is a mellow, passive-agressive, blend of anguish and a sense of loss, and while someone may say, "that's just like them silly kids, with their..." etc., etc., Anabret really makes you want to listen through the whole CD -- from beginning to end, a powerful record which promises great future potential. Rock on, Anabret!

Great Sound!!!!
Never heard this before, but I was EXTREMELY surprised and pleased! This fits right into the vein of music I listen to to relax - it is pure music not a conglomeration of noise. I WISH THERE WAS MORE!!!!!

Yes Selena but which band was first
I"m buying this CD because I fell in love with Chimestone and googled them, and found your comments. But by the dates on the CD I think maybe Chimestone was first either way who cares I like both. The Just For Grins seems more rocking and fun but just my 2c.

A word from Frenchie
So great music I heard when I watched the tv show John Doe !!
In times I would say normal, guys playing guitars were just for me Boys looking to charm girls but this time I was really impressed.
A music full of maturity and talent.
It has been a while since I heard such a great voice and music.
Just go forward and remember there are two fans in France who just love this music !!
