JASON BANCROFT AND THE WEALTHY BEGGARS: The New American Folk: CDEP

After listening to The New American Folk, I have a strong urge to go train hopping and catch fish with my bare hands. It’s one of those folky punk albums that’s rife with social commentary and DIY ethic empowerment. What Bancroft’s voice lacks in range is made up with gruff sincerity. If you like Chuck Ragan at all, you’ll like this.
