The Hollering Pines call their sophomore album a collection of "worried songs for worried times." And while it's not surprising that I'd write about music with an underpinning of anxiety, that's not necessarily what I'd call Mansion of Heartbreak. Certainly the album confronts lots of different kinds of pain -- betrayal, lost love, lost work -- but there's a gentleness at play that offsets the pain. If you listen to the Hollering Pines, you'll walk away with the unshakeable sense that these are just passing troubles.
