San Francisco string band The Human Condition performs original, modern-day roots music, creating a sound as varied as the world they inhabit. Each song strains against the confines of style and expectation; as much an homage to the past as a departure from it.
T.H.C.'s music is a long ramblin' drive across an American landscape that is quickly becoming the stuff of memory and imagination. Rowdy barnstormers and driving road songs are offset by calmer, brooding ballads that evoke lazy days and restless nights. Guitars, mandolin, fiddle, and upright bass are joined by lush vocal harmonies and speckled with harmonica, in a familiar palette which is cast in new light by innovative songwriting and lyrical imagery.
