"A very, very fine record." Joel Raymond, Joel Raymond Presents and WERU FM.

"The best song I’ve ever heard by an unsigned band," Steve Stroud, WRFR (referring to opening track Your Life Was Too Good).


"Rural Electric . . . surprises with each listen. Their chosen name may be simple, but it’s as apt and evocative as the songs it represents. Obvious forebears are early- to mid-period R.E.M. and songsmiths like Matthew Sweet and even Vic Chesnutt. "Company Town" and "Nicest House on the Block (Is the Funeral Home)" uncannily recall Michael Stipe’s reedy semi-twang and Pete Buck’s chiming Rickenbacker. "The Grange" opens with an auctioneer’s ramble and leads to a beautifully strange banjo figure. "Blue Jacket" is built on a guitar line that alternates between jangly strummer and swirling melodic lines. . . I sleep well at night knowing that Rural Electric is providing the blueberry state with the kinds of sounds normally reserved for bigger scenes in bigger burgs." - Michael Metivier, popmatters


Featured on The Best of Area Code 207, WCLZ, Portland, Maine

rural electric is a guitar-wielding fuzz-folk combo from the backwoods of Maine. Their self-titled debut is getting a lot of airplay in the far northeast and looks ready to break out nationally. It melds pretty acoustic playing to a noisy backdrop, with fine harmonies atop it. Andy (guitar, drums, vocals) comes from a punk rock background, having played in the Cambridge-Mass. noise supergroup PuddingMaker and in the whacked noise duo PowerBoy. Alan (guitar, bass, banjo, piano, keys, vocals) has more folkie leanings, though he did play briefly with John Spencer before he ever Exploded. Andrew Carpenter (bass, baritone, guitar) has played more in his bedroom than in clubs - this is his first real band. Tate Gale (drums) has played in any number of rock bands from Maine and beyond. Together they make quite a unit.

The band’s first record came out last spring on Losers/ Weepers to a lot of acclaim, garnering a lot of airplay in the northeast, and showing up on year end Best of Shows. They’re currently shopping it to bigger indie labels, looking for broader distribution, and hitting the road for a slew of live dates.
