Sometimes, the best folksingers don’t come from the backwoods or shanty towns, or the coastal cities in the UK, but reside next door and sometimes are even in places you’d never expect to find them. KEVIN SECONDS is one of the latter kind. With his newest album OFF STOCKTON, an 11-track collection of heartfelt songs (Rise Records; February 18, 2014), this singer/songwriter splits his time crafting gorgeous rootsy folk songs with fronting legendary American hardcore punk band 7 Seconds. Stripped bare and raw, these songs have little semblance to anything from his alter ego’s domain. Off Stockton is the sound of a man and his acoustic guitar, with the occasional subtle accompaniment of assorted friends, and a whole lot of stories to tell.

Very DIY to the point which excess production sounds almost unneeded, Off Stockton is an emotionally visceral and musically untainted work of heart, one of the loveliest albums made in recent times. From the mid-tempo strum of “My Recollection” which features the dreamy harmonies of his wife Allyson, to the skipping beat of “All the Killers”, to the velvety pedal steel of “Truth Be Told”, this album shows a vastly different side of Kevin Seconds. He delivers these tracks with the conviction of a man born on the bayou, not of a punk raised in Sacramento.

This is the guy who went on a really embarrassing old man yells at cloud rant about scenecore bands, I hope he never finds out about his labelmates.

geezercore, sheesh, he sure put on a couple. I saw 7Seconds at a HxC fest recently, they weren't bad at all, just ...girth-ier, at least Kevin was. Never the biggest fan even back in the day but WTRT is still a classic. One of my favorite band logos of all time , however. Can't say I'm familiar with his folk stuff.
