Löysin tänään jälleen uuden musiikkirakkauden, nimittäin kanadialaisen laulaja-lauluntekijä JBM eli Jesse Marchantin musiikki kolahti ja kovaa. Kun hurahdan johonkin niin hurahdan kunnolla. Siitä kertoo jo se, että olen viimeiset neljä tuntia kuunnellut tätä taukoamatta, ja piti heti päästä jakamaan tämä teille.
JBM - Only Now by Jesse Marchant
JBM - Winter Ghosts by Jesse Marchant
JBM released his first record "Not Even in July" two years ago. On the 22th of this month his second record "Stray Ashes" will see the light of day. Two singles from it have already been released. You can listen to them above (Winter Ghosts, Only Now) as well as my favorite from his first record (Friends for Fireworks) and two videos: one of him doing one of the songs from his new record and another one, an official video for a single from his first record. If you like melancholic indie folk and acoustic guitar then you should definetely check this out! I don't think you'll be disappointed. At times his voice reminds me of Thom Yorke. It has that same haunting quality and that just can't be a bad thing.
