byron. - sad campfire songs review

There's not a lot of distractions here. No overzealous overdubbing of every folk instrument imaginable. No house-party gang vocals. No handclaps. This is straight forward, simple, and raw. And it's perfect.
There's a lot of pain and hurt within these 10 songs, without ever coming off as whiny or pathetic. This is a kid pouring himself out and then letting you watch as he picks through the wreckage deciding what's worth keeping and where to move on. Byron's voice would probably frustrate my highschool music teacher, and he usually sticks to the same 3 or 4 chords, and yet if these songs were anymore intricate or refined I don't think they would hit me the same way. This is real.

If this is what folk-punk sounded like I wouldn't hate folk-punk.
