 Colleen Green - Sock it to Me

Artist: Colleen Green
Album Title: Sock it to Me
Label: Hardly Art
Release Date: March 19, 2013

 Recorded in a Washington basement, one girl band and Ramones inspired, Colleen Green released her album Sock it to Me in early 2013. Simplistically minimalistic and catchy you’ll find yourself bobbing your head to her deadpan “Oh yeah/Uh huh/My god/”. Sock it to Me follows her EP Green One released in March 2011. With a drum machine and a few power chords Green takes her nonchalant attitude and projects it in her music. Classifying herself as “stoner punk” she lets her emotions show as her songs simply say it like it is with a “take-me-as-I-am” mantra.

 The tracks on Green’s album lend themselves to a girly feel. The first track “Only One”, as well as “Close to You” and “Yr So Cool”, all have similar lyrical patterns about a boy who is oh so dreamy and she just cannot get enough of. While the album is relatively up-tempo and fun it does show deeper sides like in “Darkest Eyes” Green sings, “I tell him he’s the only one I wanna see/And his eyes look right through me.” However, Green picks it right back up with “Taxi Driver,” a total carefree, funny song that shines a light on Green’s loneliness, while still informing her listeners with the fact she does not mind being alone, instead she will write a catchy song.

 Green’s music seems quite flat, but there is an underlying condescending attitude by the lack of depth to get her point across as she turns her feelings into witty lyrics ultimately showing her blasé mindset.
