Dark So Gold by The Pines
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Red House Records
The Pines' dark, ethereal sound emanates from the sweet spot between the principal members' Midwestern roots and growing up in the digital age: an old-timey vibe that's been given a modern makeover. Dark So Gold begins with the ghostly "Cry, Cry, Crow," an embittered look at the evaporation of rural farmlands and its people as they get sucked up by the big cities. It's every bit as stark and lonely as you'd imagine it to be. "Rise Up and Be Lonely" channels Dylan, as does the shuffling, jangling "Chimes."
