Product Description

About the Artist

In a world swimming in singer/songwriters, it's difficult to rise above the masses and create a truly unique sound that captures ears and stimulates the mind. The Pines are a band that has taken on this feet, honing their musical craft to near perfection with a sound that wavers on the edge of traditional acoustic/roots music, but embraces the nuances of today's indie-rock and blues music.

Meeting in a Mexican barrio in Arizona, fellow Iowans David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey began playing music together, forming The Pines. Committing to a musical career, they returned to their Midwestern roots and settled in Minneapolis, a music haven that has launched the careers of such folk and rock legends as Bob Dylan, The Jayhawks and The Replacements.

In 2004 The Pines released their debut self-titled album on the Iowa-based Trailer Records, establishing themselves as an emerging force in the roots music world with their haunting blend of indie-rock, folk, and blues with intelligent lyrics. In 2007 The Pines released Sparrows in the Bell on the world renowned acoustic/roots label Red House Record. The album had critics buzzing and was named one of the top roots releases of 2007 by Q Magazine. With the release of Tremolo,, their second release on Red House, The Pines continue to show their growth as artists as well as an unparalleled wisdom in their songwriting and musicianship.

The son of Greg Brown's producer and sideman Bo Ramsey, Benson was surrounded by folk and blues music and continues to let those influences shine, even on louder electric songs. David also has a deep love for traditional music, and together the two of them craft music that evokes the ancient while incorporating newer rock and pop grooves. Both strong writers and musicians, David and Benson have distinct voices that complement each other, causing audiences and critics alike to tout them as a powerful young force in American roots music. Steadily touring around the country, The Pines have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music including Bon Iver, The Holmes Brothers, Jolie Holland, The Arcade Fire, and Spider John Koerner.

My wife and I recently saw these guys open for Mason Jennings at First Avenue in Minneapolis. About two songs into the set, we just looked at each other and nodded. It's rare that I get very excited for an opening act, but this is definitely a band I'll go see on their own.

Tremolo quickly became a favorite in our collection. The lyrics tend toward the brooding side, for my taste, but are backed up by a lively shuffle beat and tactful acoustic instrumentation. The album opens with a great one-two punch in "Pray Tell" and "Heart and Bones". Other gems are sprinkled throughout, like "Skipper and His Wife" -- one of those sweet, laid-back songs you don't mind hearing over and over.

Hope these guys keep making great music and get rich doing it.

I picked this one up after hearing the song "Skipper and His Wife." Unlike the other reviews on here, I haven't had the privelage of hearing them in concert. However, I was more than pleased with what I heard on the album. At times their songs are almost too subtle, somehow gliding by without grabbing you, but the songwriting here works well enough so that never really completely happens. They've got some delta blues in them and obviously some folk.

"Shiny Shoes," "Behind the Times" and "Heart and Bones" are just three of the best songs on here. They are all good though, but if you want to hear the best of what this album is about, the songs mentioned in this review are a good place to start.

KEY TRACK: "Heart and Bones"

One day I happened to hear a song by the Pines on NPR, and I had to hear more. Although I have long enjoyed the music of Bo Ramsey, I knew nothing about his son or this group. Nevertheless, this album is one on which every single song is terrific. I listen to it frequently and never tire of the music.
