The Pines

Ever since I went the Elliott Smith tribute concert a few weeks back, I’ve been obsessed with this group. Benson Ramsey, one of the members (the other being David Huckfelt) of the group performed at the concert, and really intrigued me. I don’t know how I had gone so long without hearing them before, as they are local here in the Minneapolis area. Benson’s voice is one of the most unique one’s I’ve heard in a long time, the only way I know how to describe it is breathy, weathered and broken at times. Tremolo is the band’s most recent album, and looking back now, it’s probably one of my favorite albums released in 2009. Here are a few songs from the album, hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I do.
