Oh wow Dang
THOSE DARLINS - Blur The Line LP
Tennessee art-cowpunk quartet Those Darlins' third album, Blur the Line, is their best. No longer a trio of girls aiming to please with their looks, the band is now equal parts ladies and dudes. With this lineup, the group have hit their stride. Here, they meld CBGB-style proto-punk to barroom country and Stones-y rock 'n' roll. Whether they're slow-burning across "That Man," pop-stomping out "Baby Mae," or Ramones-ing through "Optimist," Those Darlins sound totally assured.
