RATIONS: How Much Land Does a Man Need?: 7”EP

I loved Rations last record, so it was no surprise that I love this one, too. There are many adjectives that come to mind to describe their music, but beautiful is the one that keeps coming back to me. It makes me feel warm inside. Not necessarily a happy, warm feeling, but maybe something between that and that warm numbness in your face after taking a shot of whiskey out of a metal flask on a cold winter night. Rations takes me to my early twenties. All ages halls and basement shows where the bands said what they wanted with feeling. It’s a good place to be.
