New Haints record reviewed in Pitchfork

The Haints earn a C+ from stingy Prof. Pitchfork

Hardcore hipsters are finally taking note.

“To Win or To Lose,” the latest album (their second on K Records) by local-ish jug band legends The Pine Hill Haints, recently received a 7.8 from Pitchfork.

That’s a full .3 point bump from “Ghost Dance.”

The Haints have always nipped at their own sound. On To Win or to Lose they find it, each of their deftly carved instruments aimed like pistols at your heels.

To put a Pitchfork 7.8 in perspective for you, the new Modest Mouse only scored only 7.2.

Exactly.

The Haints rock Fred’s Feed & Seed in Loachapolka the Friday (9/18) before the West Virginia game, and headline Saturday night’s victory party at The Independent.
