Music Friday: "Springterror"

This band for this Music Friday, Frontier Ruckus, has been featured before, but their new album, Deadmalls and Nightfalls, comes out Tuesday.

They have an interesting sound ~ folky stuff with acoustic guitar and banjo prominent and sometimes the trumpet and/or the singing saw lending a musical hand. The latter is featured early on and the former is featured later on in "Springterror." Some of FR's lyrics can be wafty affairs, lurching toward willfully obtuse poetry on occasion, and a number of their songs express the decay of the band's home state of Michigan.

And since the Nasty family will journey up to Michigan next week and I dig the schtick of Frontier Ruckus, I offer you "Springterror."
