Best Labor of Love

The Towson-Glen Arm Freakouts blog/compilations

Nostalgia for your vibrant young-adult years as you approach mid-life is nothing new—see also: pretty much any white heterosexual American dude author since 1950—but rarely is it pulled off with such profound sincerity for excavating life’s creative purpose. On the Towson-Glen Arm Freakouts blog and compilations, Mike Apichella performs an impressive bit of musical archeology to provide context and clarity to groups of suburban teenagers in 1990s Baltimore County who, for some reason, embraced outré music, writing, visual art, and politics in an effort to self-define who they may become. Bonus: The music, much of it unheard outside its immediate peer group, consistently slays.
