Allen Hinds Monkeys and Slides
August 17, 2011
To be honest, he had
me at “Monkeys,” but
this guy’s slide playing
is also awesome.
Then there are the tones, which rule, including
sweet acoustics and thick, syrupy leads.
The tunes are solid, so non-guitarists can also
dig this record—but guitarists will be blown
away, especially by the slinky lines of “Pedro
and Marta,” and the Holdsworthian burning on
the title track. allenhinds.com.
