Shane Smith & the Saints Deliver Genre-Bending Songs on 'Geronimo'
Take the Americana- and folk-esque instrumentation of a band such as the Avett Brothers and the harmonies of the Zac Brown Band, put them together with a Bruce Springsteen-like voice and the lyrical sensibilities of Bob Dylan, and then throw in a bit of Celtic rock a la the Dropkick Murphys, and you'll wind up with something along the lines of Shane Smith & the Saints' newest album, Gironimo. The 15-track record, which was released in September, is a stylistic departure from the band's 2013 debut disc, Coast, as well as from the sounds of their Texas country counterparts -- and, really, that's the point.
