Because, just like all the others, this generation is unique. We are very aware of the other side of the mountain, but aren't deterred by the climb there. We know what we're after, and we're not going to smoke it away. Bored by the rhetoric, we see how the internet has leveled the playing field and we're grabbing at the world with both hands. We've read the books, we've taught for America, and we're more mobile and connected than has ever been possible in recorded history. The issues are deeper and more numerous than ever, but so are the tools with which to correct them. And no revolution is complete without its songs. It is in this vein Andy Gallagher has born out of his unfinished basement a bundle of songs written and recorded in those intermittent cracks between the pursuit of financial freedom. Combining the dust bowl feel and lyrical tones of early folk with a nod to the indie-pop arrangements of this century, Andy has borrowed instruments and musicians and distilled what he felt needed to be said into music - the medium of the people. They can be catchy but they can also be important. Put some Trains Across the Sea records on, grab a beer, sit on the porch, and watch the sun set over our fertile land, silhouetting the mechanical beasts sprawling our countryside.
