|New Bums - Slim Volume 7"" |
Donovan Quinn and Ben Chasney team up for a new project under the name New Bums, pinning Quinn's plaintive call to Chasney's deft picking for a brilliant first single that's wrought with high, wistful nods and a country heft
| that's hard to ignore. The four tracks here have a dusted ease to them that draws on Quinn's solo work, often cut through with a dark troubadour wit and quavering with his silvered drawl. Chasney on the other hand pulls the reigns back on his cinder and smoke psychedelia, instead focusing on his masterful picking, giving the record a solemn twang that goes down easy. As a bonus the pair close out the set with a cover of Nikki Sudden's "The Road of Broken Dreams". Definitely a highlight for 2013 and reason to be anxious for their full length just announced for the spring on Drag City.
