Genre nonconformist folk-rock with a hearty sense of humor and a fearless take on human sexuality. -Marissa R. Moss, Rolling Stone
Buck Up, the new studio album from singer and songwriter Carsie Blanton, opens with a siren. The warning – or call to (dis)arms – segues into the first notes of "Twister.” Finger snaps alone accompany Blanton’s smoky vocals, before piano, upright bass, cello, trumpet, and drums join the proceedings.
Over the past dozen years, Blanton has been making music that personifies play. Her work has been called "impeccably catchy” by critic Robert Christgau, with musician John Oates admiring her songs’ "sly wit and urbane imagery” that remind him of Cole Porter.
