RED CITY RADIO: To the Sons and Daughters of Woody Guthrie: CDEP

Mar 15, 2010

This CD came with a sticker on the front that said “Grizzled Pop.” Which isn’t something I’ve seen before. I don’t even know what “Grizzled Pop” is. However, I like this EP quite a lot. Comparisons to bands like Against Me! will be inevitable for this band, given their melodic, fist-in-the-air, sing-along punk rock. Comparisons aside, these guys know what they’re doing. The songs are tight and fun; the lyrics are earnest and political without being tiresome. I would love to see this band live and I’m glad I heard this CD. It is the kind of thing I’ll put on when I need a musical punch in the arm.
