New "old" Limes...great stuff

Limes is Shawn Cripps' extremely loose-knit, blues-slouching, garage-rocking project, usually with Harlan T. Bobo in tow, sometimes with other Memphis-area players. I reviewed his third (but first readily available) CD Rhinestone River last year for Dusted. Now Goner has repackaged his first two CDRs which are, if it's even possible, rawer and more relaxed than Rhinestone. This is great, great stuff, and if you like bands like the Oblivians, Ty Segall, the Reigning Sound etc., but think they're just too damned antsy and quick, hah, have I got a record for you.

Here's a link to "5 Years" on Soundcloud.
