At the Campfire
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 synthesizer 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.
