The Withdrawals, a quintet from Albuquerque, NM, formed in 1994 and has released two CDs to date, their self titled ep released in 95 & their most recent release, SMILE. The Withdrawals have a full sound 26-04 - Current Issue of Relix on the Newsstands Now!with punchy rhythms, catchy hooks and a powerful blues-rock base. Likely influences include Blues Traveler and the Spin Doctors, although the band doesn't really sound like either. The Grateful Dead is even reminiscent in "Man on the Mountain," but there are decidedly more funk-rock elements in the sound.

The group is at its most original in the powerhouse rock of "Gypsy Woman" and the southwestern textures of "Anima." The latter features a great vocal and some crisp guitar playing. Also of note is the funk-filled "Walking." This is one of the most unique sounds to hit the scene in a long time, buy this album and you will be pleasantly surprised with its originality and its musicality.
