PINE HILL HAINTS, THE: Smoke: LP

Nov 22, 2017

Hell yeah! Just in time for Halloween, a new Haints record, and an album at that. Thirteen tracks in total, and not one dud. For those unfamiliar, the Haints are not afraid of their regional influences in that they have cultivated a sound that seamlessly blends the blues, country, and early rock’n’roll all wrapped up in a Southern gothic, DIY shell. Recorded in one evening, you can literally feel the humidity dripping from the ceiling on all of these tracks. Comparing these cats to anyone else would be an insult, but I imagine if you dig Hasil Adkins or stuff like Jimmie Rodgers along with your punk rock, you will find plenty to love here. –Garrett Barnwell (Arkham, arkhamrecords.net)
