Blank Range is Happily Bummed Out

Grant Gustafson laughs a lot. He laughs when describing how him and Jon Childers, the other guitarist in Blank Range, started writing songs at different stages in life (“Jon was definitely interested in that earlier on, so we strike a good balance”). He laughs when I point out that a chunk of their Facebook posts promote other artists (“Hmm”). He laughs after revealing the name of Blank Range’s homegrown cassette label, (“Yeah, we call it Sturdy Girls Records”).
