Raising Hands Raising Hell Raise 'em High
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
This jovial indie-folk duo isn't slow -- not one bit. They speed up The Lumineers and fun.'s massive arena sonics to a bluegrass clap-clappy pace, as the brassy Patricia Lynn howls "You fools will die alone!" over banjos and stomping kick drums that make noise mightily. Her wordy, almost rappy delivery gives her the chatterbox edge of Charlie Daniels while meeting the indie mainstream in the middle with such titles as "The Heart It Beats the Thunder Rolls." And when they finally do slow it down, it's for Lynn to lament that she misses smoking pot.
