||Slim Dime are an acoustic folk duo. Their music is contemporary and urban, but woven through with the simplicity and space of old time mountain music. Listen close: you can hear fog soaked valleys, mountain ash forests and the grit of gravel road.
Using minimal arrangements Ė acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, banjo and vocals, they make a sound that is all bare bones and emotional complexity. Jen Landís voice tells stories with nuance and emotion. Chris Taylorís playing is intelligent and idiosyncratic. The songs talk of lives lived and lessons learned, of sorrows and of loss, but there is redemption too, and even joy.
Travelogue, their second album, journeys through a country and folk music landscape of mountain shadows and careworn folks and beauty found in unlikely places. There is coming home and there is leaving. The material is original songs and traditional songs made new, mesmerising story telling and precise musicianship with emotional range. The production is understated and warm and real. Itís music that makes you lean in and listen. These songs are new but theyíve always existed somewhere on a mountaintop.
