AllMusic's info on Abileen
Pixies, Throwing Muses, The Breeders
Abileen is an indie-rock band in the tradition of Heidi Phillips' previous band Frogpond: both rocking and melodic, with Heidi Phillips' distinctive vocals. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Abileen is the only one we've heard
Heidi Phillips—lead vocals, guitar
This six-track indie rocker, though individual, has slightly folkie touch and a slightly Throwing Muses feel. Heidi Phillips's smoky vocals brightens the rock sound of the band, both anchoring and lifting it, occasionally pushing it towards the mournful indie plaint. The songwriting is distinctive and definitely above the average fair. This ep is a strong start for the band. (email@example.com)
