Grayson County Burn Ban
three chords
Independent
3.5 out of 5 stars

If through some bizarre time warp and improbable alignment of the planets the members of Uncle Tupelo and Nirvana played songs around the same campfire, it would sound like Grayson County Burn Ban — and nowhere is that more clear than on three chords closing song, “Campfire Song.” With a minimalist punk-rock approach to alt-country, the Denver quartet makes a raucous sound and like their forefathers they’ll probably never be referred to as ‘tight.’ That doesn’t mean that the songs are surface level at all though. The songs are smarter than they initially sound, with some introspective lyricism that rises above their rough exterior on tracks like “Today.” But it isn’t hoity-toity, and just as easily as the group makes listeners think they also make them lift their glasses on some great dive-bar drinking anthems.
