Staffers is the Washington DC based project of musician and artist Ryan McKeever and company. Drawing influence from UK post punks such as The Fall and Swell Maps, Flying Nun records, and a litany of old country crooners, Staffers welds these foundations into their own image of loud, charming ramshackle pop. It’s American guitar pop with punk ethos. There’s no self-importance, no bullshit. Just a full set of well written basement garage tracks. Through it all McKeever has a way with his (generally self deprecating) words, and by the end you can't help but love the idea of Staffers and his big win for the underdogs of the world.
