Members: Tyler Grady
Album: Shitty Kids
Judging from his lyrics, Tyler Grady may have chosen Shitty Kids as an album title because it’s some kind of eponymous. “This is the last year I can act like this,” he sings on “Last Year,” the first song on an album that presents an abrasive young man fumbling his way through adulthood. It’s a well-tread path, but Grady’s dark take on the subject—which draws stylistically from the ’90s lo-fi of Sebadoh and the mild experimentalism of bands like Suckers—is compelling.
