"Great Rock and Roll record define the time they were made. Welcome to 2013."
I can't remember when I first came across the music of The Grimm Generation. I think maybe another band I follow mentioned them. I do remember hearing "Sometimes I Subtle (Sometimes I'm Drunk), and I remember thinking, "Wow, this is music everyone should hear", and at the same time thinking, "I feel like I already know this music.". I later had the opportunity to do a brief e-mail interview with the band, and it began to make sense.
You see, and what has recently begun to gel in my mind is that The Grimm Generation make the music I would make if I made music (and if I was talented). We come from the same place age and influence-wise (and perhaps experience-wise as well), and so - although I do like have very diverse tastes in music - The Grimm Generation manages to hit all the right spots in my psyche, and thus, as word began to build about a new album I couldn't help but be excited.
