Those Darlins: Blur The Line

Fred Mills, Blurt, 1 October 2013

TRUTH-IN-TITLING: Blur The Line is the operative term here, with the Nashville combo literally evolving before our eyes (ears). It's like watching a fish slip from the primordial swamp onto the shore, which then shivers and twists its head around only to abruptly sprout legs and arms and then go marching up the path to kick the asses of some preppy amphibians. Okay, maybe I'm reaching a bit in my simile. Work with me here, okay? Given the startling, relentless evolution evidenced here, maybe we should just settle for "this ain't your mama's Those Darlins."
