So is it political or personal?
Maybe all politics are personal.
On Ballast and Bromides, the fifth album from Arms of Kismet, the state of America hangs over city and countryside like a sooty cloud — albeit one with a playful silver lining. “Songs are like little worlds,” says singer-songwriter Mark Doyon, “where we can work out our hopes and dreams.”
Maybe we could all use something new to sing.
Step up, citizen. Ballast and Bromides is for you.
