CHOKECHERRY: The Future Was a Long Time Ago: LP

May 07, 2015

Imagine for a moment that folk punk in 2015 does not mainly consist of angry boys filming themselves playing tone-deaf Pat The Bunny covers on guitars made out of coffee cans. I want to call what Chokecherry does folk punk, because that’s what it is, but I don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea. It’s more like if This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb could—just barely—get away with playing an actual non-punk barn dance. It can come off as a little affected at times, but that tends to come with the (cactus-studded, tumbleweed-blown) territory. If you like some wistful fiddle and twangy Hank Williams yelping with your pop punk, this could be for you.
