Travelogue

by Slim Dime

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.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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 - acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, banjo and vocals, they make a sound that is all bare bones and emotional complexity. Jen Land’s voice tells stories with nuance and emotion. Chris Taylor’s 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, was recorded by Matt Walker and Rowan Matthews at Stovepipe Studios, produced by Matt Walker and mastered at Deluxe Mastering by Adam Dempsy. All 13 songs were recorded live by a collection of beautiful vintage microphones.

Travelogue 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. It's music that makes you lean in and listen. These songs are new but they’ve always existed somewhere on a mountaintop.

“Slim Dime treat songs with utmost respect, and the listener is the beneficiary.” Jolene – Country Music Blog
“the arrangements and performances are utterly engaging and, because of the nature of the material, altogether timeless.” - Leicester Bangs
