Carolina Still / Press

“The songs of The Color of Rust find that nice warm place where the themes are familiar, but not quite clichè”

“Carolina Still are not necessarily superpickers, and if they were, it might take away from the spirit of their music. Instead they rely on good ears to craft catchy elements to reel you in”

“The Color of Rust, spiking old music with a new energy”

“To an outsider, “Hog Killin’ Time” may seem a bit harsh, but it’s a song about cold weather and bacon. Blake Shelton is probably too busy hanging out with Christina Aquavelva to record a song about breakfast meats, but thank goodness Carolina Still did it.”

“The Color of Rust” is steeped in southern vibes and tones”

“Carolina Still’s new album “The Color of Rust” is an impressive blend of bluegrass/country music delivered with the zest of rockabilly and punk. The album’s tight playing and fresh production make the Avett Brothers sound like a funeral band.”

“The band’s new album “Distiller” follows up on the promise of their debut. It digs deeper into storytelling on the title track and “Erastus Clay” and sets fire to their instruments on the fantastic instrumental “Black Cat in the Briar Patch.” From the sound of things the band has only gotten better, more nuanced. Once again they capture traditional and Americana music with a modern feel.”

“Their quasi-outlaw shenanigans make for an often hectic ride through some dirt road songwriting, and with three vocalists and a fiery rhythm section, they’re rarely off the pace.”

“The band promotes a vision of early 20th century rural and small-town life, with a distinct Southern focus.”

“The record is quick in melody and intense in themes. You’ll hear stories of jail time, murder and running from police. You could call them storytellers of sorts.”

““Distiller” smells of authenticity.”
