These United States
These United States
These United States surrender themselves to unbridled rock and roll exuberance: ringing guitars, thundering drums, desperate yearning bordering on hope. By turns larger-than-life and disarmingly intimate, this is folk in the truest sense - a record of the moment, of the cultural and emotional forces that animate everyday existence somewhere down below the headlines. (But never apart from them.) And These United States play it the way folk was meant to be played: hard, fast, big, slow, long, loud, loose, at last unburdened. They play like they mean it. Like there's never been a better time to be alive.
Over the last four years These United States has played 800 shows, released four albums and gained the support of NPR's All Things Considered, World Cafe, and Mountain Stage, Spin, Paste, Filter, NY Times, Village Voice, Brooklyn Vegan, JamBase, The Onion, Daytrotter, My Old Kentucky Blog, KEXP, KCRW, WXPN, and WFUV. Festival highlights include: Lollapalooza, High Sierra, Pickathon, Glastonbury, Mt. Jam, XPoNential, Joshua Tree, Celebrate Brooklyn, and Forecastle.
Money for Guns
Money for Guns
American Trash by the midwestern rock n' roll band Money for Guns is an exploration of what it means to come of age during this current age of distraction American children of the 70's and 80's have had to move through. You can feel the songs shed off weight after weight as you listen through the nearly hour of music contained within. It's an album about what it means to become an adult with all of trappings of youth that are shoved to the forefront of American pop culture. It's a record about the struggle for the meaning and purpose of maturity in a society that seems to value everything but.
