GIZ MEDIUM: Are We There Yet?: CS

Surprised that folk punk is still being made; however, given that folk punk is still around, I’m not surprised that it’s being made poorly. Cards on the table, I find folk punk generally unbearable. Typically, folk punk sounds like shitty camp songs with lyrical content that reads like diary excerpts from an uptight and uncreative college-aged hippie. Giz Medium did nothing to change my generalized perception of the genre. While there are a couple songs that have a full band sound, this cassette is mostly just crooning with a guitar, trying too hard to be heartfelt. For fans of Ghost Mice (if there are any). –Vincent (busstoppress.bandcamp.com)
