Portrait of The National Convention
Nestled in the foothills of the Berkshires, National Convention’s brainchild and songsmith Eric Poulin set out to make a record that would paint a more upbeat portrait of the oft downtrodden indie rock scene of Massachusetts. He called upon a cast of many of the area’s premiere talents to graciously lift these songs from a simple acoustic foundation to the massive, horn and piano laden pieces that you hear here. At times, National Convention will recall the lost AM radio crackle of giant 70’s fare such as King and Goffin and The Carpenters. At other times it will blast the rock polishings of 70’s giants Steely Dan. Lyrically, Eric spins a web of half fiction, half non-fiction through various characters that help relieve demons and also help the listener yearn for a lost and sweeter youth, all set within the backdrop of a wonderfully small New England setting.
