Kevin Abstract’s American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story has close to no sonic aim, and I’m enjoying it all.
His newest song, “Miserable America,” pushes more toward a modern sound, with influences of rock, punk and gospel all wrapped into one. He vents about how shitty living in America can be, having a homophobic mom when he’s gay and a racist best friend when he’s black. But it gets a little easier when you don’t care, love someone, listen to Young Thug and realize there are more people like you in the country than you think.
