The San Francisco-based band's second LP is as witty as their debut, Here's to Feeling Bad All the Time. In spite of The Creak's bleak lyrics, the band brings a sense of fun to their group person, as evidenced by their jacket art:
I mean, a postapocalyptic bluegrass band? Sure. Why not.
The Creak bring a joi de vivre to their music that is, unfortunately, all too rare. And I can now say that with a year of listening to everything that found its way to my inbox. These guys are a standout band, and it's worth your while to give Here, Hold This a home on your hard drive. After all, it's cheap as free.
