Rasputina / Press

“The cello-stoked trio Rasputina have shown fitful signs of brilliance in the past, but their grand ambitions have finally been realized on their sixth full-length CD, Oh Perilous World.”

Falling James - LA Weekly

“: Creagan’s inherent theatricality makes each song a singular adventure. Her concept here translates historic current events into wordy narratives splashed with her colorful, extravagant string arrangements.”

Steve Dollar - Time Out Chicago

“Literate, carefully constructed, ferociously belted and rocked and drummed, these are songs for a hard-rocking apocalypse. The cello—like the Victorian females who populate these songs—is stronger, and angrier and more desperate than it seems.”

“Rasputina's sixth album lodges the intrinsically offbeat trio well left-of-center but they inhabit that spot with a naturalism that normalizes the unorthodox instrumentation and precipitous shifts in mood.”

“Blending European gothic imagery with a sometimes frantic cello-driven sound, Creager and company have carved out and inhabit a distinct musical cubbyhole since breaking out a decade ago.”

Brian McCollum - Detroit Free Press

“Unable to fit tidily into one genre for most of their 15-year career, the band’s use of stratified string arrangements, idiosyncratic vocals and antique songwriting should certainly receive some more attention now that the style is musically chic.”
