The recording project of Jedediah Smith, he/they have been previously described as sort of aural encyclopedia of 60s pop and 80s post-punk put through the spooky and idiosyncratic prism of Smith’s particular emotional and cultural obsessions. Whatever that means, their output was uniformly good, mixing influences like The Smiths, Television and Jesus & Mary Chain into a powerful and catchy sound of their own.
So we were delighted to find out that they are back with a new album, which they have funded via Kickstarter. We have a couple of tracks from it for you here and the simple fact is they knock the spots off most of the post-punk / garage rock that we’ve heard this year.
Roll on the album release!
