Red Wine and Blue by The Dearhunters

In cart Not available Out of stock

Review by Matt Connors (Time Off Magazine)_In the main, The Dearhunters plough the neo-country vein of pop made famous by the likes of Wilco. The Dearhunters, though, manage to stamp it with their own style, as evinced by the West-Coast breeze of All Over Now, the somber lament of Ivy and the swirling harmonies of Ballerina. Vocals serve as the primary vehicle, from Tim Oxley’s smooth tone (much like that of Joe Pernice) to Jodi Phillis’ unmistakable set of chords with their ability to both soar and seduce. That said, much of the album’s resonance also stems from Greg Hitchock’s deft work on slide and Raph Whittingham’s restrained, toe-tapping beats. Although the predominant country feel stands-out, there’s a lot more going on across Red Wine and Blue. And best of all, it reveals new layers with each listen. An engaging debut. __**** out of 5
