Nelsonville Fest Preview: Those Darlins

YouTube Preview Image

Note: I’ll be trickling out some previews for sets that I’ll be sure to catch at the Nelsonville Music Festival throughout the week.   This is a rough chronological order. 

This year won’t be the first trip to Nelsonville for the Tennessee honky-punk lady trio,  but their visit a couple years ago was cut short, so I’m ready for the full treatment. In the time elapsed, they’ve added a drummer, had a hit in a car commercial, and put out a second album.  While they’ve always hidden (or not hidden) a little snarl behind their drawl, recent material owes as much to the Ramones or the Ravonettes as it does to Loretta, Wanda or Dolly.  It’s sassy and brash and funny (as the booger hook photo on the front would suggest) but has moments of the forlorn among the edginess.  However, expect the live show to favor the latter.
