Though it seems to have waned, I wanted to add myself to this discussion, since it appears relevant to the album I just released (Chaos Rise Up).

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/deprisco5

For years, I performed music from (or inspired by) the civil rights revolution of the 60s-70s, but I remained relatively apolitical in my own recorded music. All that is about to change. My latest album, Chaos Rise Up was largely inspired by the Bush years and the ways in which media – particularly digital media – have impacted our lives. Part protest rock, part anthemic social commentary, Chaos Rise Up melds a dystopian view of technology with a critical reading of our responsibility to hold ourselves accountable for its use.

The album draws from my rhetorical, leadership and social influence studies, and reflects on the “culture wars” that have preoccupied us for the past decade. When pressed for a description of his music these days, I have said, “It may be a bit presumptuous, but the best way to describe my music right now is if Tom Waits and Beck got together with producer Dan Lanois. Since that combo is not likely to happen, I figure there is a niche for me.”

Most of the songs are three/four chords, inspired by blues/folk, but the album (or samples you hear on the web). It is very much loud folk - with some electronics - I welcome feedback on the album and lyrics which are here:
