It’s not often people mention folk and adventure in the same review, but The Rabbitts’ Tall Pines & Tangled Vines EP has an adventurist spirit. That’s because it’s inspired by the folk duo’s travels in Canada, which you’ll totally get plus terrific vocal performances by The Rabbitts, and it’s completely recorded acoustically. It’s a nice change of pace from the usual, plugged in music we’re inundated with daily.
You’ll also get a feeling there was a lot of fun and good times when putting this album together. But there’s also clear, expert musicianship on full display here. Sounds from the acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and percussion really add to the album’s message of love.
For the die hard folk fans this album is a must have. Maybe it won’t be for everyone, but give it a listen and judge it for yourself. If you feel the same as I did after listening to the album, you’ll want to be as sober as possible to really appreciate this gem of an album.
