SOLD OUT: The Pines record release with Jeffrey Foucault
Journey with The Pines further into darkness, and closer to the light with their new album Dark So Gold. Sounding both rooted in the past and yet with a fresh, contemporary vision, the band is indeed poised to go gold.
In the haunting opening track “Cry, Cry, Crow,” The Pines conjure up rural specters and ghosts from the farms slowly disappearing throughout their native Midwest. By exploring the tension between city and small town and the loneliness that can exist in both settings, they traverse breakups and new beginnings on songs “If By Morning,” “All the While,” “Dead Feathers” and “Chimes.” Ultimately, whether rocking out (“Rise Up and Be Lonely”) or playing contemplative instrumentals (“Moonrise, IA” and “Losing the Stars”), The Pines succeed in drawing light out of the shadows. Dark So Gold is an album that provides solace in hard times and stands as The Pines’ masterwork to date.
Opening will be simpatico singer-songwriter Jeffrey Foucault. As the New Yorker states, "“Foucault’s voice, and his themes, are gruff, sombre, and deep, and his accompanying musicians [on the album], including the Pretenders’ Eric Heywood, on pedal steel, create a sparse, dramatic soundscape.”
