The Stone Pines- Review

The Stone Pines are a five piece rock/blues band from Vancouver, B.C. Formed in early 2010, The Stone Pines has been busy releasing and recording their unique brand of blues and rock music. The band’s first release, “Goodbye Devil”, a three song album featuring their unique sound. The album begins with “Big Goodbye”, a solid opening track that showcases their unique blend of several different genres. This is followed by “Devil In The Shade”, my personal favourite track. On this song, they seem to truly capture the blues feel and with it, separating themselves from the rest of the pack. The final song “Close Your Eyes” is a solid track that finishes the album off nicely.

The Stone Pines have been busy recording their second release, “Landmark”, a nine song album due out on May 20th. Last month the band released two singles from that album, “Wild Child Style” and “Rollin’ Train”. Judging by these two songs you can see that the band has grown and matured yet they have not strayed away from their roots. This album still contains that mix of blues and rock that is so signature of The Stone Pines. “Wild Child Style” is absolutely stunning and is arguably the most solid song the band has released. “Rollin’ Train” is a great song as well, bringing out the rock and roll in the band. The two songs compliment themselves quite nicely and I look forward to hearing the rest of the album.

Considering that they haven’t been around for very long, The Stone Pines has found great success playing at many venues throughout Vancouver including the 2011 Grey Cup Street Festival. Their first full length album, “Landmark” will be released on May 20th and will surely feature some amazing work. I look forward to watching this band continue to grow and can not wait for future releases. The Stone Pines will be around for a long time to come and it would be well worth your time to give them a listen.
