NYC Antifolk as it's supposed to be: Cannonball Statman

NYC Antifolk as it's supposed to be: Cannonball Statman

For starters, Cannonball Statman (who made it in our latest  Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists) has got the look - with an over-sized afro of curly red hair and a commanding stage presence. The music delivers the acoustic punk attack of antifolk by way of black metal; it’s not unusual for a typical 5-minute song to run the BPM gamut and contain several distinct sections. Lyrically, he embraces smorgasbord surrealism, but the songs always resonate and the audience is never distanced from the youthful anxieties and aspiration that fuel his fervor. - Ben Krieger, photo by Herb Scher
