The Haunted Windchimes
Rattle Your Bones
Not since the famous “Down To The River To Pray” in O’Brother Where Art Thou have voices harmonized so gorgeously on a river gospel song.
“River Song,” the second track on The Haunted Windchimes new LP Rattle Your Bones isn’t indicative of the whole album. Elsewhere, like on the track “Dead and Gone” there are country-heavy Telecaster licks, and “Banjo and the Bottle” has a gritty resonator echo of Americana but is a tender, swampy, ballad.
But that “River Song,” though? That’s just pure gold, a band embracing a simple melody and harmonizing it to heavenly heights.
