My grandmother came from a big family during The Great Depression. She had 10 siblings, each seemingly born about 9 months apart, and from what I can remember about the whole lot of them, they were so tight they squeaked when they walked. Never have I met a thriftier bunch of folks, nothing was ever tossed away. My grandmother would reuse aluminum foil over and over until it fell apart, flushing a toilet more than once or twice a day was a sin, and you've not truly lived until you've shared bath water with another sibling. And don't even think about leaving a single crumb on your plate. It was the way they were raised. She also had a wicked sense of humor about it all, she'd make jokes about how her brothers had only one thing to play with as kids. And being poor was the reason why she had so many siblings, it's what people did back then.
That's why Annalibera's new song, 'Love In A Recession' struck a chord, if not my funny bone. Don't make me spell it out for you, listen for yourself. Stream it below.
L.I.A.R. EP, the 3-song follow-up to their debut album Nevermind I Love You on Sump Pump Records is set for a June 6th release.
Annalibera are Anna Gebhardt, Phil Young, and Ryan Stier. Their debut LP, Nevermind I Love You is out now on Sump Pump Records.
