Debut album from Illinois band Grandkids. They describe their sound as "humblecore". I don't know what "humblecore" is supposed to sound like but this is a beautiful set of songs. It isn't fuzzy. It isn't really lo-fi. It's not really like much else for sale on Very Gun. But it is wonderful!
When I first heard it I just thought it was a really beautiful and well crafted album. Heartfelt. An album to get lost in.
