The Pines – Above the Prairie (2016)

coverReminiscent of Ryan Adams, Alpha Rev and even some latter-day Bob Dylan, the pride of Minneapolis goes full-bore reflective in this bluegrass, country and Americana record that is deep in mood and lyric alike. “Aerial Ocean” is a quietly contemplative opener, followed by the equally mesmerizing “There in Spirit.” “Lost Nation” is an electronic instrumental, before lead singers Benson Ramsey and David Huckfelt channel statemate Mr. Dylan’s vocal stylings on the hauntingly lovely “Hanging From the Earth” and “Something Wild Still Grows.” “Time Dreams” is a spoken-word meditation over guitar thrumming that closes out the album alongside guest artists John Trudell and Quiltman. This is indeed a quality album.
