The last time I wrote about Red City Radio, I called their music "gravelly-voiced punk of the Hot Water Music variety." Punk bands of that nature usually also like folk music, and like HWM's Chuck Ragan, RCR's Garrett Dale has a solo project where he indulges his love of folk. Garrett's releasing a new EP, Two Ts, this Friday (5/26) via Red Scare (pre-order), and we're premiering the video for "2016 Was..." off that EP. The song was originally titled "2016 Was Horseshit," and the label tells us "it's about all the good folks who passed on last year, the shitty election, etc." Watch the video below.

Garrett is touring with The Flatliners and Pkew Pkew Pkew, including a Brooklyn show on July 14 at Knitting Factory (tickets). All dates are listed below.
