The Rationales: The Going and The Gone

The Rationales are an Americana powerpop group from Boston, and they have just released their debut EP The Going and The Gone. Available now from iTunes and, The Going and The Gone is a six-track collection of melodic, poppy, rootsy jangle rock that gets right to the point. According to easily fooled:

"The Going and the Gone kicks off with a confident, luxurious mesh of guitars on "Guardrail," followed by the boisterous bounce of "No Guarantees," [and] sustains this wave of raucous, infectious energy throughout--which might be why the closing track "Ruby Colored Halo" comes as such a surprise and delight. Featuring lovely touches of slide guitar, this sweet, folksy number not only offers another view of the Rationales, supplementing their power pop chops with poetry as well."

To get a taste of what The Rationales have to offer, listen to and download "No Guarantees" here. These guys are off to a great start, so look for more from them in the near future. Head over to their MySpace for more music and Northeastern tour info.
