A mixture of Americana, folk, and punk is the name of the game when it comes to Bobby’s Oar, the new musical project from Greg Hughes, formerly of the band Among Giants. Go on, hit play above, or grab the free download, either way, check out the song “It’s a Vice.” Notes Greg about his music: “I write songs. Sometimes I’ll play them acoustic, sometimes I’ll play them with peeps. I’m just trying to have some fun playing tunes.”

You might be asking us “American, really? Why are you covering this?” Well first of all, screw you, we’ll cover what we want. Secondly, Greg is pretty gnarly and you should “get with it” already. Lastly, for an “Americana” act, this music is beautifully rough-sounding and trust us, pretty darn heavy. Bobby’s Oar’s debut full-length is called The Weeds in Your Garden and if you head over to Bandcamp, you can grab the whole thing as a Name Your Price (FREE) download.
