GREENLAND IS MELTING

“Our Hearts Are Gold, Our Grass Is Blue”
(greenlandismelting.bandcamp.com)

Not every band from Gainesville, Florida sounds like Jawbreaker or Less Than Jake. GIM play rootsy back porch folk with fiddle, banjo, finger-pickin’ bluegrass licks, and lots of sweet vocal harmonies. The Gainesville influence can be heard not in the sounds – which are all folkie/country/bluegrass – but in the attitude and the lyrics, which can be cheeky, irreverent, and self-deprecatingly funny.

Fans of Whiskey & Co. or Illinois will want to check out these hillbilly punks.
