this is the best new picking I've heard in a long, long time. if you have not heard of crooked still, mark my words, you will, because they are just now on the 1st step of a long, long, bluegrass escalator into the stars. i recommend listening to this album while: driving up highway 1 between big sur and monterey, drinking copious amounts of honey wine, having a picnic with your shoes off, grilling italian sausages, reading ann landers, backcountry skiing, water-skiing, on a pier by a blue lake with your feet dangling in the water.
a beautiful combination of traditional music and fetching, talented contemporary soundstuff. everything about the crooked still sound gels and i put it right up there with the telluride bluegrass sessions in my all-time favorite category. lovely stuff. beatiful work. welcome to the world crooked still!
