The Pine Hill Haints - “Tales of Crime Part 2” from the Tales of Crime (IPU138) single.
Vocals fuzzed up and in the red, reading over the background noise of a drum beat, mixed in the glitchy feedback of a delay pedal—this track rules. The Pine Hill Haints at their weirdo best.
If you haven’t heard the news, the Pine Hill Haints will be releasing Welcome to the Midnight Opry (KLP236) Tuesday, October 4! Boy is this record a doozy - it’s their third full-length on K, and the Haints have never sounded better (and if you’ve been privileged to hear the Ghost Dance and/or To Win or To Lose, then you know we’re really saying something).
If your appetite needs whetting, here’s “Moon Shadow,” warm-hearted and lovelorn.
