South Carolina's married duo Shovels & Rope return with their 5th album, 'Little Seeds.' Will it root itself in your ears? Listen our review to find out.
New album reviews every Tuesday!
• Shovels & Rope continue tilling the soil of folk, blues, rock, and country to cultivate a sound all their own
• Americana’s Bonnie & Clyde craft rustic sounding tunes, dropping lyrical knowledge from the society’s fringe
• They continue to fuse rock and folk in really catchy ways
• Ranging from folk, americana, blues, rock, combined with the strong dual male/female vocals, makes for a very intriguing sound
• The theme of duality is executed really well across the album -- from lyrics to sounds, between songs and within them
• Strong lyrically -- vivid storytelling, interesting character studies
• Key Tracks: Botched Execution, St. Anne's Parade, Last Hawk, Buffalo Nickel
• I Know and Missionary Ridge felt out of place on this album
• The last third of the album got a bit sleepy and slow at times
