Album Notes
What people are saying about the Basals!

Good Times Magazine: "As always, (they) proved to be consummate musicians. Every move they make on stage exudes their readiness for stardom."
"...another jewel in the crown of Long Island music."
"If you're a music fan, you should buy it. If you are an A & R person, you should sign them. Period."

Musician Magazine: Named Top 10% in the Best Unsigned Band competition.

Discmakers: Named Top 10% in the Best Unsigned Band competition.

Newsday: "The Basals have a lot to offer for an unsigned band - an appealing combination to talent scouts seeking the next Garbage or No Doubt."

The Island Voice: "You'll love this band!"

Mixx Magazine: "The Basals command attention - a little punk, a little pop, a little grunge, a little sarcasm - once you catch your breath, you want more!"

The Music Paper: "Fine musicianship and clever arrangements are just two of the highlights here."
"...(the song) Time Bomb is definitely the ticket to a major label deal..."
"...band to look out for..."

Long Island Entertainment: "The Basals are a cross between some of the best female-fronted power pop/new wave bands of the early 80's and pure 90's adrenaline." "...a major label outfit momentarily going the grass roots road..."

The Music Connection: "...a sure bet for A & R."

Good Times Magazine: "Debut album so dynamic, so infectious, and so memorable - a grip on the human condition from the view of the young American mainstream - reminiscent ofthe post punk radio favs of the early 80's." "Strong songs, top shelf musicianship and a live show that should not be missed. Give The Basals your attention if you're into the cutting edge radio of our day."

The Island Ear - "(The Basals) understands the roots of the alternative scene better than most - inspired - musicianship first class."

More Sugar Entertainment - "The roguish, energetic voice of lead singer Holli has a retro sound that is reminiscent of Blondie and the B-52's - punky pop songs that are playful and unerring. Frolicsome melodies that pull you into the fascination of The Basals."

Rock Diva Magazine - "The Basals hold the crowd in the palm of their hands - a feast for Alternative Rock Lovers."

Great CD Bought it cuz I heard about the band through the grapevine...This chick rocks and the guys backing her can play! Great songs..


heard the basals on WBAB's homegrown and I had to go out and get the album! I love these guys! Great songwriting and they can all PLAY! Awsome female vocalist-very unique sound, powerful, emotional...These guys just sound like themselves-no cookie cutter stuff here...worth buying the album just to own Angel in my pocket!


Fairly decent stuff. Since there's no description of their style or sound on this page yet, I'll offer up what I thought. Their instrumentals are all right, kind of Bela Fleck twangy-plunky. I'm not an enormous fan of the vocalist. She's got kind of an Annie Lennox meets Melissa Etheridge sound. All in all, fair fare.
