Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

It seems like every time we’re getting Mumforded or Lumineered out about the state of folk music — nothing says “folk” like hiring the world’s biggest stars to be in your self-mocking video — an old-school punk with an acoustic guitar comes through town to remind us that it’s not all bullshit. Not to get all Pete Seeger and shit, but the mustache-twirling, suburb-dwelling, chart-topping version of folk music that’s oh-so-trendy these days just doesn’t connect with us. Some scraggly underdogs tramping across the country in an old van singing songs about rebellion and how much shit is fucked? That totally connects. And maybe it’s because we love Seconds’ old hardcore band 7 Seconds — nobody embodied the DIY ethos better — or maybe it’s just because we’ve got a low tolerance for the phrase “Hey! Ho!” when not sung by The Ramones, but we think Seconds is folkin’ great.
