CD REVIEW: The Pines "Tremolo"

A little bit of country twang, a little bit of blues, and a whole lot of folk make up the parts of The Pines' latest release. This new album has the band graduating to a new level of indie folk excellence. The song "Lonesome Tremolo Blues" is both beautiful and haunting and is lyrically awesome. "Pray Tell" starts off the album and gets the listener in the mood to take a journey through Americana that is well worth the trip. The traditional instrumentation of Americana music is in full effect here, yet the Pines are far from traditional. The Pines are an underesitmated force of indie folk music and their new album has proven that huge radio hits and flashy production are not the way to impress.

MUSIC VIDEO: Jack Johnson "At Or With Me"

Check out the new video for Jack Johnson's latest single "At Or With Me." The video features a hilarious guest appearance by Andy Samberg of Saturday Night Live. The premise of the video plays off of Andy's skit "The Mellow Show" in which he portrays Jack Johnson in a comedic way. Jack of couse seeks his revenge and hilarity insues. In the end we are all better for having participated, even Jack and Andy. Oh yeah, check out G. Love making an appearance on stage with the band!
