Album Notes
"A lone mandolin announces their arrival. Like much of the full-length debut from the Montana Slim String Band, it's a classically high lonesome sound adapted to something quite non-Bill Monroe. While the pluck and snap of the instruments harks back to a fine lineage of mountain music and bluegrass, there's subtle modernity to their tales, appealing boy-girl harmonies and nuanced playing. Montana Slim is a direct descendent of fellow S.F. region granddaddies Old And In The Way, and they exude a similar love for good songs played with open feeling and strong sincerity. From the remodeled sea shanty that begins this 11-track song cycle to the speedily picked ode to love's intoxicating fullness that closes the collection, Slim Pickins encapsulates a very pure string band aesthetic that's likely to flip the wig of anyone into Hot Buttered Rum, Chatham County Line and other contemporaries. But like these peers, there's a personal thread stitched into the traditional vibe, a line of color that emerges in pockets and accents that stray off the beaten path. This ain't no "jam-grass" but it's clear there's plenty going on upstairs in this classy, strongly musical ensemble that I think Mother Maybelle would have loved."-Dennis Cook, Jambase
