Album Showcase: Calm Down, Everything is Fine by Mike Mains & The Branches

Mike Mains & The Branches sophomore album Calm Down, Everything is Fine has a great blend of various styles. There are songs that have rock influence, while their are other songs such as “Slow Down” which is calm and has a folk feel.

These mixtures of style are blended on the last track of the album Calm Down, Everything is Fine. The tack starts off calm, with some intimate verses, but picks it up halfway through and turns into a fantastic rock song. It contains really well written and clever lyrics, having lyrics that mention wine, Jesus, and Davey Crockett.

The album features some star studded musicians, with Matt Hoopes of Relient K on lead guitar, and Zac Farro of Paramore on the drums.
