Slime Dime (VIC) CD Launch
Slim Dime are an acoustic folk duo. Their music is contemporary and urban, but woven through with the simplicity and space of old time mountain music. Listen close: you can hear fog soaked valleys, mountain ash forests and the grit of gravel road.
Using minimal arrangements – acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, banjo and vocals, they make a sound that is all bare bones and emotional complexity. Jen Land’s voice tells stories with nuance and emotion. Chris Taylor’s playing is intelligent and idiosyncratic. The songs talk of lives lived and lessons learned, of sorrows and of loss, but there is redemption too, and even joy.
