ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Histrioniks have just completed their second CD, “About This Girl” on CatErratic Records. A follow up to their debut, “Homesick From The Grave”, the acoustic duo have turned a new page; a 180 degree shift in both sound and style. The minimalism of “Homesick” has been replaced with layers of rich harmonies, driving guitars and bass all built on the foundation of drums, purposely absent on the first CD. The first child, experimental but somewhat cautious has surrendered to the second child; a fearless , tireless rascal who meets the world head on and wins! It’s as though the meek have inherited the airwaves and then pulled a fast one on the listener.

“About This Girl”, well, it’s about this girl, perhaps any girl coming of age and being misunderstood. It’s her personal diary put to music and verse. Her journey begins innocently enough - all girls are innocent at first. As the cover art suggests, she is a person of many faces, a woman and a child of great complexity who is willing to try anything. It’s not the unholy trinity of sex, drugs, and rock and roll that do her in ( although at least two out of three are at work here) but rather the unusual way in which she chooses to live her life. “About This Girl” illustrates the point that life is a cumulative process - you just pick up things along the way.

We hope you enjoy our “girl” - we enjoyed creating her. She’s yours for the taking. Find her on our website at www.thehistrioniks.com, at Cdbaby, on Itunes and, naked and alive on radio stations or fittingly clothed in magazines with the words that befit her style. That’s what she would want!

Buy now, brag later
I am not one of the fortunate people to have satellite radio, nor do I have an extensive CD collection. So, I have found myself listening to a lot of earthly radio lately. To cut to the chase, my ears are growing weary of stale music.

Enter: “About this Girl”. I do believe I’ve discovered the biggest secret in music, right here on CDBaby. If you only buy a CD once a year, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed if this is the one. The Histrioniks, a seemingly unknown band, have a thoroughly refreshing sound with a retro twist. This is the kind of catchy album with smart, sexy lyrics that veteran guitarists/songwriters wish they could write (and if you look inside the cover you’ll notice that one man wrote all of the songs and played all of the instruments on the album).

“About this Girl” is highlighted by sparkling female vocals which tell a poetic story of a girl….. any girl and every girl, a girl I have met and a girl I would like to meet. Creamy vintage guitars and pulsating drums add to the experience. My humble advice: get this album now, and have bragging rights when everyone else is talking about it later.

Collected Sounds


There's something so fun about these songs. You can't help but wiggle a little in your office chair…or barstool. The melodies are interesting and intricate. The performances are charming and very well done. This band is very talented.

This is just a really well thought out, well-executed, and above all fun record and I hope the Histioniks continue to put out unique and interesting music for the discerning ear.
