Label: Quarterstick Records
Genre: Pop

Rachel's five Quarterstick releases have inspired numerous attempts to describe the band and its style, resulting in phrases like "subversives with a cello," "classical post-rock," "post-classical," "lo-fi Louisville loafers," and finally, "the foremost purveyors of forlorn and lamentatious orchestral arrangements in the indie world". Perhaps more accurately, The New York Times described Rachel's as "mature enough to disregard trends and do what they like." Simply put, Rachel's is a collective of friends playing in an instrumental band that share the desire to explore ideas together without manifestos or genre biases. The band is based in Louisville, Kentucky (state motto: united we stand, divided we fall.)
