Genre nonconformist folk-rock with a hearty sense of humor and a fearless take on human sexuality

Rolling Stone on Buck Up
Carsie Blanton hasn’t lived her life like the most of us — and because of it, she sees the world in ways we probably all should... A self-declared socialist, all of this “unconventional” living (at least according to capitalist structures, as she often points out) has led to an equally unconventional approach in her music, where she tackles gender expectations, genre norms, societal expectations and sex through songs that are as smart and funny as they are well-constructed. Her new album, Buck Up, “is about two different kinds of edginess: a sexual one and political edginess. It’s an expression of the fact that I don’t give as much of a damn about making people comfortable as I used to.”
