Format: Audio CD
The Pines' last offering, "Tremolo" was a real gem of dusty Americana, although it seems by and large to have slipped under the radar. This new one follows much the same formula, with David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey's appealingly hushed vocals and crisp playing encased in a beautifully sparkling production. The only problem is that most of the songs are noticeably less memorable this time.

Things start well enough with "Cry, Cry, Crow" that slips effortlessly into an insistently mournful groove and stays there, while the softly shimmering "All The While", all crisp guitars and background echoes, is far and away the best thing on the entire record. It's just a shame there aren't more like it.

The three instrumentals (too many, surely?) "Moonrise, IA", "Losing The Stars" and the banjo-led "Grace Hill" sound more like backing-tracks waiting to have vocals added, rather than standalone pieces. Elsewhere, song structures and rhythms ("If By Morning") already seem overly familiar because of their similarity to previous Pines songs.

At their best, The Pines are an engaging and very moving listening experience. There's nothing wrong here that a few more tightly written songs can't put right, and hopefully they'll address that next time round.

If you haven't heard this band and love real music by real musicians then just order this and their other album tremelo. Light the fire put them both in the CD player get some good drink and turn it up loud and be transported to a different level. I haven't come accross a band this good in some time no need to go on just add to your basket....

Americana at its best. The pines deliver a hypnotic album rich in dark Americana which is irresistible. I also like the instrumental tracks which adds to it atmospheric feel overall. Highly recommended.
