THE RECOMMENDER – NUMBER 79 – JUKEBOX COLLECTIVE

JUKEBOX COLLECTIVE

Welcome back to The Recommender.  Those regular readers will notice that we’ve changed up a little from previous posts.  This time we plan to do one single recommendation at a time, rather than the traditional three, so we can focus more on each band and post more frequently.  It’s all designed to improve the Recommender experience.  One thing that will certainly improve it are the fantastic music selections such as Jukebox Collective.  You will see in the below post, (Recommender 78), that we had located our new favourite band with The Tins.  As amazing and adored as they still are, they’ve already had to be bumped off our metaphorical top spot by this new four piece from London.  We suggest you put your ears back in the box and return to sender if this band don’t top yours too.  Consider the liveliest of beats, frantic spiked guitars, awesome riffs and choruses that will have you dancing, clapping and singing along like you just had 10,000 volts up your ass!  Think of the kind of guitar hooks and energy that The Rapture or Gang Of Four jammed out, or the more modern synth version that it evolved into with The Sunshine Underground. It’s all rolled up with some awesome styled vocals, from Kev Sewell, who sometimes sings, but sometimes speaks the words, in the way Julian Casablancas did, if he had Scroobius Pip‘s Essex accent.  It’s an outstandingly smooth ride, considering they’ve only been together for just over a year, with Greg being the main architect.  We spoke with the South African-born Greg earlier today, who’s been over in East London for the last seven years.  As former members of Havana Guns and Dakar Raleigh, they’ve now formed this new project, together with the Supremo Music label, which they’ll release on, at least initially.  They’re playing our Recommender party in Brighton on Saturday 24th April with Wild Palms, so head down if you like what you hear.  If you don’t like what you hear, we suggest you locate your brain’s reset button, it’s in their somewhere.  (MB)
