The Black Pine
The Black Pine
Dark songwriting that doesn’t aspire to goth, and the ability to conjure deep sadness without gettin’ emo on everyone, makes the Black Pine a rare species these days." - LA Alternative Magazine "The Black Pine make dark, stormy pop music that's at times reiminiscent of some improbable pairing of The Cranes and The Kinks. How can you not like that?"-Radio Free Silver Lake Members of The Black Pine collaborated with Adam Goldberg on the musical score of two films, most recently, his 2003 feature, “I Love Your Work.” They also served as the local backing band for comedienne Sarah Silverman’s stage show, “Jesus Is Magic.” - laist.com Hailing from L.A., The Black Pine delivers their take on ambient melancholy. "With Us", their latest release is dark but pretty, angst filled yet dreamy. My favourite tracks on the CD, "Let Go" and "Early Morning" both have bright sounding guitars which are contrasted by the tormented vocal style of singer Mitch Cichocki, On "Some Will Come With Flowers" another stand out track, Mitch's voice is contrasted by the piano but also complemented by a brilliant classical sounding violin.
A couple of the tracks also have female vocals which sound ethereal and appropriately haunting. In the vein of This Mortal Coil and Galaxy 500, this CD has completely grown on me and will be a part of my mellow out bed-time routine for quite a while. - SpillMagazine Read more on Last.fm.
