Notes

West Coast Buzzards meet Tennessee Ghost Country Ramblers somewhere between the 1990’s and 1890’s. These two groups of friends trade songs that are in some ways very different sounding and in other ways perfectly complimentary. The Trainwreck Riders out of San Francisco offer two songs layered with heavy guitar and heartbreaking lyrics. Mixed with an addictive pace, you can’t help bob your head to it the next time they roll into town. Pine Hill Haints deliver a much more trimmed down approach. Choosing to highlight one string bass and accordion with fiddle, banjo, guitar and snare drum too, the Haints push the songs dark southern themes through their blend of old traditional string music and creepy punk rock roots. Both sides hold a perfect balance between having a good recording and still staying true to their rollicking live shows.(110 on clear wax and 440 on black wax THIS)
