I really enjoyed Ronnie Bowman's "Left This Country Boy All Alone", but it sits in an interesting place with Flobots:
First, there's a stark contrast of musical styles of course. But it's almost representative of old-time versus a starker, darker modern music, isn't it? A bouncy bluegrass song with jumping banjo and a ditty about being left by a woman and the pain it causes. Simple. But then I'm listening to Flobots again...
Enter the musically inspiring Flobots, who talk about all the amazing things they can do, yes! In my ipod, it's a taunt, a satire of all the things we are so proud to do. High class problems. First world problems, having a girl leave us and being broken up about it, isn't it? We are in a tight spot, world. We focus on the little things, while all the while we have complete dominion over our little world, with absolute power over everything, but the will to do almost nothing.
Why it's confused
