LIMES: Rhinestone River: CD

Sprawling, folksy college rock with plenty of twang and hints of psychedelia, Limes come across as a sedated J Mascis fronting Pavement, with languid vocals that droll over meandering, exploratory guitars and a mellow, easy-going back beat, peppered with vibes, accessory percussion, and trumpet. Listening to this reminds me not just of Pavement, but of their native Stockton, CA and its long, hot summers, where time and the air seem to stand still, no matter how much watery domestic you down in a futile attempt to combat the heat and the boredom.
