Colleen Green - I Want to Grow Up - 2015


beatjesus This record captures that wonderful vibe all my favourite 90's indie records have, but with more heavy riffs and a lovely warm textured production. The most fun I've had in ages.

super_roots Wow. I have never related so intensely to song lyrics before. Turning 30, anxiety, struggling to break free from self-imposed constraints... it's all here, presented straightforwardly but beautifully. Musically, the album is a sledge hammer, a quantum leap from her early recordings, muscular. I love this album.



I Want to Grow Up, the latest collection of songs from LA songstress Colleen Green, follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion. Her firm belief in true love is challenged by the inner turmoil caused by entering modern adulthood, but that doesn't mean that her faith is defeated. This time, she's got a little help from her friends: the full band heard here includes JEFF the Brotherhood's Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet's Casey Weissbuch, who collaborated with Green over ten days at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN.
