A band of country sweet-talkers led by the soft brooding voice of Warren Thomas, the Abigails make evil cowboy music. Thomas and co. bring to mind the traditions of a genre that can be charming even in the middle of a murder ballad, and recalls the punk country vibe of Roky Erickson, Uncle Tupelo and Okkervil River by embracing these contradictions.

7/10 Staff review, 18 September 2014

Well this sounds a lot like Johnny Cash. Warren Thomas has a voice so low that’s its barely discernable to human ears and by jove does he have some tales to tell with it. Opener ‘29’ makes for a rollicking start, over a pounding train like rhythm, acoustic guitars intermesh are topped with  lap steel to create a firm footing for the black storytelling. He literally WEEPS “the telephone don’t ring anymore since you left me”  to  get you in the mood for  the crestfallen tear drenched balladry of the lonesome ‘Calm Before the Storm’, there’s some Tom Waits style rural blues on ‘The One That Let Me Go’ shot through with Morricone twangs and spaghetti western imagery. Its derivative, for sure but expertly made. Look at the sleeve - it sounds just as you imagine.
