Album Review

For indie anti-folk artist Shawn Cripps' third album, Rhinestone River, his band of merry men (Harlan T. Bobo, Jack Yarber, and Nick Ray) ad libs and crunches its way through a loose pile of off-kilter songs. On this, Limes’ first U.S. release, the production sticks to a purposely raw vibe, which is combined with the slack ruggedness of ‘60s rock and country-fried alt-rock.

Although the content’s not all an easy walk in the park, it sounds like Limes are having themselves a good ol’ time putting on a show in your living room. Everything is recorded dry, to make it sound spatially close and live, but the record’s true feeling of intimacy comes from the centerpiece: Cripps’ deep, mumbled, barfly vocals.
