Music Monday: Barons in the Attic

This past Friday, Barons in the Attic played the 4th-annual B3nson Family Funsgiving show at Valentine’s, alongside We Are Jeneric and Matthew Carefully. In addition to keeping tradition alive (which likely involved participating in the annual “beard-off” competition and eating turducken), Barons have been busy promoting their latest album, Turn It Off & Take Out The Battery.

In my experience catching them live over the years, the four-piece has successfully failed to disappoint me. Whether it was in a basement or at Valentine’s in collaboration with WCDB, I’ve learned that Barons in the Attic is a band that likes to have fun when they’re playing, and goes out of their way to express how genuinely appreciative they are that people came out to hear their music.

Self-described as “thrashfolk”, these dudes pull from a variety of rock-infused genres to create a unique blend all their own that is sprinkled with obvious passion towards their craft. Simply put: listen to this band if you want to listen to good dudes who have a good time and make good music with good intentions. No games, no gimmicks.

You can stream their latest for a limited time here.

KAB picks: “Nutshell”, “Title Theme From a 90’s Sitcom”, “Recessionist”.
