DC based folk rockers aaron tinjum and the tangents have a brand new album out now called 'foreign and domestic'. the well developed songs deal with themes of travel and relationships, a perennial favorite subject matter for rootsy singer/songwriters.
the production is full-on contemporary americana, which fits the material like a glove. the bitter, broken-love tune 'queen double standard', which contains the titular 'foreign and domestic' line in its lyrics, is a great 'folk/rock break-up song with DC vibes', a category i had not thought of before.
