TOWNIES: Meet the Townies!: CD

Nov 15, 2022

This mid-tempo bluesy rock band from a small town in Colorado has a bunch of strong feelings on a number of topics. The songs with serious sociopolitical lyrics are right on, tackling a number of topics I agree with… but when they move away from “real” issues lyrically, there are a lot of swings and misses here. Yes, people from Texas (like myself) like to visit Colorado, as it’s not a far drive and… it’s nice up there in Colorado! There are a lot of good people in Texas coexisting with the cesspool that is the rest of the state, just trying to get by like everyone else. Also, you can like both rock’n’roll and jazz—these things are not mutually exclusive—and liking jazz does not make you an “asshole.” At the risk of sounding like an asshole, it sounds to me like these Townies need to get out of their little Colorado town a little more often. –Mark Twistworthy (Snappy Little Numbers, [email protected] / fuckingtownies.bandcamp.com)
