BRAVER: Stay Busy: CD-R

Braver is from Minneapolis, but don’t make any assumptions. They’re far less gruff and world-worn than many of their comrades. The lyrics are filled with question marks, as if they’re at a tipping point, one winter away from a worldview shift for the worse… or better. There’s hope in questions. When the questions stop and the answers come, that’s when things falter. These guys have the right attitude though. As the lyrics go in the standout track, “All My Friends”: “I’ll never see it all.”
