At the Campfire

Download it at Bandcamp! (Also available at Amazon, iTunes & CDBaby.)

The Capitalist Youth’s debut album, At the Campfire, contains lyrically driven songs that struggle with love and religion, and music that draws on the strength of friends and community. The album’s friends-in-a-room indie rock may appeal to fans of Pedro the Lion, the Frames and the New Pornographers. The album is both organic and synthetic, combining banjo, glockenspiel, and improvised percussion with syntheziser and distorted bass. While recording in living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens the Capitalist Youth harmonize, clap and stomp through songs about summer camp, existential crises and gubernatorial indiscretions.

The Capitalist Youth is Eric Heveron-Smith, Frank Wartinger and Greg Kamprath. Album recorded by the Cosmonaut Union. Includes performances from Scott Hallam, Brian Heveron-Smith, Kelly Kamprath, and Seth Faulk.
