"Imagine Whiskeytown with some pop or Big Star with a bit more twang and the result would be a little band by the name of Larabee." turnstyledjunkpiled.com/2011/10/16/larabee-a-slice-of-pure-alt-country-pop-goodness/

"Larabee’s EP is a terrific collection of alternative-country rock and roll dosed with a power-pop sensibilities. The guitars shimmer (“Little Liar”), the songs are super melodic, and the arrangements are well crafted (“Forever’s Ending”). There is a timelessness to the sound of these songs that makes them comfortable and refreshing at the same time." WXPN's The Key thekey.xpn.org/2011/03/get-to-know-alt-country-rockers-larabee/

"The Jayhawks at their catchiest." powerpopaholic.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-eps-larabee-cowbois-and-orion.html

"Matt Maguire, driving force behind Philadelphia's Larabee, leads off his brand new EP, Expose A Little Wire, with 216 seconds of pop bliss, the jittery, harmonica driven jangle fest "Little Liar". Easily passing the Five Second Test (trademark pending) with an adrenaline-laced guitar volley spiked with a skittish harmonica jolt, "Little Liar" is a classic, attention grabbing track 1." teenkicks.blogspot.com/2011/04/give-larabee-216-seconds.html

"Little Liar is a song that Vocal Nerd Rodeo calls an “alt-countryish gem” and I agree. As someone that grew up on country, Little Liar is one of those songs where I can’t help but tap my foot along with. Throw in the harmonica and I’m hooked." 1146miles.com/larabee-little-liar/

Track Name: Little Liar
I could listen, but it won't last long
Most everything you said is wrong
Like a beaten down cliche
I'm a hundred miles away
Just another expression in the wind

I could follow, but I don't have time
You're a whim with a warning sign
Standing close enough
Not ready to give up
Just another obsession I can't shake

Expose a little wire, nothing's happened yet
Become a little liar and you thought I'd never guess

I could argue, but not with you
A reminder seems overdue
Pleasant to a fault
There's a point I won't cross
And another suggestion I can't take

And I could love you, but it won't succeed
Had a dream and a turn to leave
But if it hasn't gone your way
What's left for me today?
Just another impression I can't do
And another expression in the wind.
