Two Summertime Singles from Jigsaw Records

Jigsaw records

Now out on Jigsaw records……!

Lunchbox – Smash Hits EP

This 7” packs in six tracks! Riding on the heels of their previous LP, this jangle-ish pop EP mixes it up with punk elements and makes a rather potent and sweet piece of work. The tempo is surprisingly speedy – very fast despite gently paced lyrics. In a sense, this sort of creates a dreamy state upon listening which is something I really liked about the last LP and I’m glad to still feel that upon spinning this EP. But don’t blink! You’ll miss it! The b-sides hit just as hard as the a-sides, the pace still running wildly but the lyrics flowing smoothly. It’s a solid release from start to finish, not a dull moment anywhere. Fans of their previously released material will surely love this EP. (4.8 out of9)

Moon Types – “Know the Reason”

Swedish band Moon Types blossom on this brilliant 7” that was just released on August 7th. It’s a prime bit of indie pop with elements of jangle. The sound winds up being somewhere between Air’s more acoustic side and early R.E.M. Three tracks make up this debut release, each one of them is gentle but engaging and rather accessible. I feel like this is a strong debut, despite how mellow this recording is and I’m eager for a follow up single, EP or album. (4.8 out of 5)

About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
