ROMAN CANDLES: Gracious Living: 7”EP

These two slice-of-life folk punk tracks from the creator of The Stowaways zine out of Southern California observe the apathetic, weed-smoking adults our friends have turned into. Solid song structure and lyrics tell of friends shedding their raucous, rebel-rousing youth behind to shut themselves in their rooms and medicate. Not a bad intro to the band, but I wish there was more variation in the material.
