The Railsplitters - The Faster It Goes (Self Release)

Star rating: 
4

The second album release by Colorado quintet The Railsplitters once again showcases a pretty dovetailed and cohesive unit, both in terms of the band's musical empathy and their clean and uncluttered arrangements. With the distinctive lead voice of Lauren Stovall, whose rich vibrato comes along at precisely the right moments throughout, together with Dusty Rider and Peter Sharpe's duelling banjo and mandolin conversations, the band is completed by the equally vital contribution of Christine King's vibrant fiddle playing, underpinned by Leslie Ziegler's informed bass playing. The musical creativity is just as crucial to the instrumentals as to the songs, not least on the highly complex rhythms of Goosetown. A great album.
