The Miami - I'll Be Who You Want Me To Be

Genre: LoFi Folk
Label: self
An exploration of traditional American lyrical poetry, mainly African-American (slave songs, gospel hymns, spirituals) reinterpreted by two middle-class, secular, well-educated college kids; a genuine clash of culture.
The self explanation press text for this release says it all. All the lyrics are traditional songs in some new lofi folk and garage rock clothes.
Pretty good work!

Tip: I danced in the morning
