It sat around for a few weeks until one day I decided to rip the disc into iTunes and toss it into the random work mix. It spun for a week and it wasn’t until I looked for the songs today that I realized what I’ve been enjoying all week. I have a few John Vanderslice and Folk Implosion albums in my library and I assumed the songs I heard and liked were one of those bands, but it was all Brad. “Making Me Nervous” is my current favorite song on earth. It sounds like the best of Folk Implosion and the rest of the Brad Sucks disc is really good too.
It’s well worth the five bucks, and once again I’m amazed at the full sound a record-at-home musician can create. The days of multi-million dollar recording studios and thousands of dollars per hour rental fees are dead. Now it’s just a cheap PC, a little equipment, a little software, and some expertise to make music.
