New Music Video: Craig Elkins, “Same Old Person”

An oddly motivating song from the ex-Huffamoose singer-songwriter

It’s fun to keep track of Craig Elkins. Once a Philly fixture in alt-band Huffamoose, he’s been based on Los Angeles for more than a decade and still making music, off and on. Older rockers write songs about getting old, but this one’s kind of an I-ain’t-done-yet song. (Unlike that Bob Mould one about going crazy.) I’m not calling it hopeful — Elkins lives up to his claim of making “music for real (depressed) people” — but it is sorta… vigorous. If you like “Same Old Person,” Elkins has some more new stuff here.
