Recording: The Pinecones

Artist: The Pinecones

Songs: Ooh! + Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) [Edison Lighthouse cover, feat. Ron Sexsmith]

Recorded at The Piston, February 6, 2014.

The Pinecones - Ooh!

The Pinecones and Ron Sexsmith - Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes

Full review to follow. If one thought that smaller labels operate from a notion of promoting brand identity or serving narrow demographics, then it might seem counter-intuitive to see that the new Pinecones album is out on the Reel Cod imprint, which put out ace albums last year from Fresh Snow and Mimico. But if you instead simply assume that they're releasing music that they think is good without concern for those things, this makes a whole lotta sense. The Pinecones, meanwhile, continue to generate power pop delights as if bellbottoms had never gone out of style. And to make the album release even more of a special occasion, they had a series of friends join them on stage, including this one from a singer who appeared under pseudonym "Rex Songsmith".
