JTT: Self-titled: 7”

JTT are a band from Corvallis, OR that plays country-damaged pop punk. They’re very sincere and great lyricists with songs that range from adult anger at a deadbeat dad, to a story of a lonely old man who drank himself to death, leaving the narrator wanting to pursue a better life and encouraging the listener to “hold yourself up and make your presence known.” It’s a pretty good and inspiring effort. It makes me feel both like the old man who wasted all his time and inspires me to think I’ve got a lot of time left, to not let life pass me by.
