Grant Peeples (from the album A Murder of Songs available as a self-release) (by Bryant Liggett)
Grant Peeples has dropped a record both quiet and heavy. Quiet in a sense that it’s a soft Folk record, driven by acoustic instrumentation and ripe for a folk festival. Heavy in a sense that he’s delivering hard hitting content, narratives that drop like a reality bomb. A Murder of Songs is a heavy smack of the truth, a rough around the edges Folk record with a lot of grit.
Grant Peeples conveys some bleakness in “This is the Good News” when he opens with the line ‘all the heads are talking, bout what’s going down, and all the good folks know, it don’t matter anyhow’. He’s capturing the whole notion that when some watch the news they’re doing so knowing nothing will change. “Revolutionary Reel” is a fun old-time number that serves as a motivational cut when he sings its to time ‘abandon caution, a little action instead of talking’ and he then drops a big weeper in “Dear Sadie” where he gives a lesson in some of this countries shadows. Pointing out of the ugliness continues in “Insurrection Song” but he does so with a bouncy jig and some advice with what to do to the people that caused a more recent bout of ugliness on a certain January 6th.
The Folk sound is dropped on “Liberal with a Gun,” where Peeples goes down a Crazy Horse path and uses feedback and piercing guitar to remind us that the right aren’t the only ones with a sidearm. Grant Peeples is a tough folkie singing about some tough subjects on a tough record, and its lack of fluff will hopefully inspire some action from the listener. (by Bryant Liggett)
