Charm Wrestling

by Summer Blanket

Introspective folk-tinged indie rock. Wilco's postmodern roots rock is revered just as much as the giant shadow cast by Lennon and McCartney.

Album Notes
Pop Up Records proudly presents Charm Wrestling by Summer Blanket. The debut long player is a collection of introspective tunes by Keith Michaud backed by a hodgepodge of musician friends.

The archetypal singer/songwriter has evolved since its glory days in the '70s. For people who remember Tricky Dick and long lines at the gas pumps, the term conjures memories of sensitive guys on stools with acoustic guitars. Fast forward to the present and the unlikely scenario of punk and indie rockers turning the volume down and looking inward is no longer taboo.

Summer Blanket's songs are adorned by sharp lyricism, melody and indie rock aesthetics with a deep appreciation for rock's classics. Wilco's postmodern roots rock is revered just as much as the giant shadow cast by Lennon and McCartney.

The arrangements on Charm Wrestling are beautifully ornate decedents of chamber pop, while still retaining the simple pleasures that come with those classic songwriters of yesteryear. We think you'll agree that this is one of the most satisfying albums you've purchased in quite some time.

Fantastic CD start to finish.
You can put in this CD in and play it all the way through without wanting to skip a single song. Perfect driving music!

Fantastic debut!
My girlfriend calls this emo, but that is definitely selling it short, and really not coming close to explaining the detail and craft that went into these songs. There's no screaming or angst-ridden acoustic rage. Just beautifully tangled melodies slipping in and out of sweetly strummed guitars, vintage keboards and moments of orchestral brilliance. Not to be missed for fans of Grandaddy, Wilco, Bright Eyes, and The Decemberists.


Good cd from some Sad Sad boys
This cd is a sure buy. The songs are orininal and inviting. I really like "Mirrorframes" and "A Girl Name Regret". The only thing I would argue about the cd is that it has the emo-ish "Oh whoous me" feel to it, but individually all the songs are pretty damn good.


Sunshine in your stereo!


Amazing CD! I advise all to Buy!
