Barley Station is from my hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. They released their debut album, After All, and I would suggest you check it out. There is so much to like about this band, I'm not sure where to start. They have amazing rhythm, great vocals, deep bass, impeccable harmony, tight drums beats, and clever and intricate guitar riffs. Taking a page from some 70s Folk singers, the lyrics have a fresh sound and feeling.

Barley Station is a mixed bag of genres. They have a little bit of everything. Country, Folk, Rock, with even a hint of Jazz at times. Several of their songs remind me faintly of something Right Away, Great Captain might come up with. These are your classic "thinking songs". Great music to sit back, relax, and just listen to.

Barley Station has an addictive "twang" about their music that, honestly, I never knew I liked. In fact, I had to make a new category in the Genre section for Country just for them. It's a big day for everyone, I guess. First Aid Kit has a similar Country vibe to their songs, though, Barley Station kicks it up a notch or two.

My favorite song from Barley Station is True (I'm a sucker for harmonicas). True kind of strikes me as old-time Country, maybe even, dare I say it, Kenny Rogers. It has a slow yet progressive beat, great harmony, harmonica, and finger-picking awesome guitar. The lyrics are totally different from your typical mainstream radio crap. They tell a story, are intriguing, captivating and force you to listen.

Review written by Cindylou - Ontario, Canada

I hardly ever write reviews but after getting this cd and listening to it in its entirety I HAD to come by and give these guys the recognition and praise they deserve.

Barley Station is clearly a band that will be around for a long time. They are incredibly talented as songwriters, musicians, and as a band in general ~ wonderful vocals and impeccable harmonies that will blow you away. Yes... if there is one main thing that stands out about Barley Station for me...it is definitely their harmonies. The music itself is unbelievably amazing!

They perfectly blend roots, folk, rock and country into their own whole new superb genre. I admire bands/artists like these guys who have their own individuality that clearly have talent. They are true to their music, own style, and have this crazy fun unique sound that's a joy to experience. This cd is full of gems, packed with fun music with a few slower gorgeous tracks thrown in, showing the many sides to why their fans adore them.

Okay, if I had to choose a favorite song, it would have to be "True" (track 10). This tune is full of beautiful vocals and melody, perfectly placed harmonies, amazing guitar solos, heartfelt lyrics, and the ever so wonderful harmonica solos (which perfectly completes the song). My second favorite song is "Abilene" (track 4) ~ another stunning slow track; I love acoustic ballads :) This is extra special to me as it showcases their amazing acoustic guitar playing and as always wonderful lyrics and exquisite harmonies.

There are so many songs on "After All" that will surely get you movin' and smilin'; I'm telling you, these guys would rock "live".

Barley Station - After All (Barleyfields Records)
There's an abundance of creative talent in Barley Station, as no fewer than three members - Randy Wayne Belt, Brian Kious, and Emily Thomas - write and sing. Together they blend alternative country and rootsy folk-rock into a style that has all the pop appeal of the classic Jayhawks records, but remains earthy and resolutely unpolished. It's a win / win for me, and I'm sure they'd appeal to both No Depression readers and fans of first generation country rock; they just need to be heard.

That can be remedied by hitting the samples above, and if you do, be sure to pay special attention to "Can't Sleep for Venus" which builds tension and hits emotional peaks like a classic Roy Orbison number. "Dream You Lost" indicates harmonic qualities usually only found in siblings and "Abilene" is arranged beautifully, it's unhurried and spills its secrets one at a time. They can rock it up too, and "Cobalt Blue" might be the best example. If it were 1991 it might've sat on a mixtape between Tom Petty's "King's Highway" and Uncle Tupelo's "Graveyard Shift", and it would've sounded great.

As it is with all great underground music, the listener's got to be pro-active, and go find it. I hope lots of people find Barley Station, because there are too many `great lost bands' already; we really don't need another one.
