PARSONSFIELD

When Poor Old Shine discovered that their moniker — pulled from a prison work song — was an obscure racial slur, they changed their name. Yet don’t pity poor old Parsonsfield — the switch hasn’t slowed their momentum. Under any name, Parsonsfield pumps out revitalized mountain string band swing, spiked with alt rock energy. A cover of “Can the Circle be Unbroken” crackles with authentic fire, but Parsonsfield widens that circle to include innovation with old timey sound. (Michael Walsh)
