The Shiners

See Rock City

Planetary

More rocking than their debut offering Bonnie Blue, See Rock City is still defined by ex-Dirtballs Wes and Jyl Freed’s chilling and unsettling take on bluegrass and banjo-led honky-tonk. From the punk-y “Hurricane Blues” to the down-home stomp of “Lookout Mountain Girl,” The Shiners’ approach their country music with passion and sincerity, but in a lighthearted, unpretentious tone.

See Rock City is an album of all-embracing, traditionalist folk music that refuse to limit itself to any one inspiration in particular, and instead do whatever it damn well pleases at any one time. Inspired, informal and sincere.

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
