Grateful Web has a review of Working Man's Dread, the new LP from The Contraptionists. The site writes that "these songs tell a story and paint a picture even if there’s a little bit of coloring outside of the lines. You know, that two-man, one-man band, thing… The songwriting on Working Man’s Dread is personal and a reflection of America’s past and present. Influenced by the cognitive dissonance and frustrations of the current American landscape, traveling and playing music on the road, relationships, human support and lessons learned the hard way. The music is an alloy of rock and folk elements—murder ballads, road legends, and love story songs for the hopeful and broken-hearted." Read the full review here.
Working Man's Dread went for NACC adds last week and is aiming for debuts next week. Get it spinning now.
