PINE HILL HAINTS: Ghost Dance: LP

Ten years after its initial release on K Records, Ghost Dance has been re-issued on the Haints’ home base label Arkam. As far as the punk people playing acoustic instruments game goes, this band and this album in particular are the shining-fucking-star in the infinite universe of lesser acts. There’s just so much atmosphere on this record. You can’t avoid being transported into their world with welcoming arms for another raucous night of “smash skull blues.” Damn near perfect. Long live the Haints! –Daryl (Arkam)
