The best kept secret in music

"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"The album's mysterious rock concoction makes forty minutes seem over just as soon as they've begun. It requires listen, after listen, after listen. It potentially becomes one of those albums you could like without even realizing it which could very well be the best kind." - Cdreviews.com


"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"The album has amazing lasting power--not only that, but it's so enticing to the ears, you will play again and again, and not get bored. It's that good, that intense." - Musicemissions.com


"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"It’ll take at least one month for listeners to fully unravel the songs. With long, drum-centric instrumental passages akin to Dredg, vocalist Jason Dodge alternates between whispers and screams. They go from Futureheads-like breathlessness on “Oil and Water” to Bronx-like fury on “Stalker” to soft falsetto pop on “Death of an Oarfish” that tinkle along like Sea & Cake. It’s a successful execution of the quiet-loud dynamic." - SDcitybeat.com


"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"Withdrawal has managed to create something which is both unique in sound yet familiar in its overall scope and in doing so, they should achieve a good level of recognition which they more than deserve." - Independentclauses.com


"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"Rising out of Fullerton, California, the alternative quintet is certainly unique. Their songs all have impressive moments, little climaxes and melodies where the guitars swell and the cymbals crash and a chill goes down the listener’s spine." - Comfortcomes.com


"Review of "The Perfectionist Blacklist""

"This is truly a great record, one that manages to tie in all of the biggest and best sounds of this new century's exciting musical spectrum without coming off as cliché, boring, or derivative." - Decoymusic.com

Bio

Begin with art rock and punk, cut up with progressive musical elements. Fuse it with songwriting born of a deep commitment and respect for playing music. The result is a sound that is both eclectic and smart without being scattered. It is music that challenges convention while hinting at something familiar.

Jason Dodge(vocals/bass) and Jared Rushton(guitar/vocals) have been in bands together since their early teens. Nanda Tierney (electronic/keys) Jared’s brother Ryan Rushton (drumkit) and Nanda’s cousin Todd Crayton (percussion/horns) complete the bands sound.

Goodbye Effect has a unique and powerful live show that balances delicate beauty with ferocious intensity. The strength of the live shows continues to win new fans each time they play. IF they play a show near you, and you have not yet witnessed them, do yourself a favor and check it out.

Goodbye Effect has found musical inspiration (not imitation) in bands such as Sonic Youth, Mogwai, Sebadoh, Guided by Voices, Built to Spill, Wilco, Modest Mouse and many others. And while you’ll find hints of these influences this music is unlike anything you’ve heard before.
