Young Jesus "The Whole Thing Is Just There (Saddle Creek)"
Its been some time since art rock has been this art… or this rock for that matter. Joint LA-based quartet Young Jesus on their experimental journeys into riffs, noise, shifts in tone, stretching out, and all around being a very good band. Its like The Sea and Cake teamed up with very early Modest Mouse to cover Miles Davis albums in his Bitches Brew phase. Yeah. It is that good. Polyrhythmic jazz-rock drumming, prog rock bass prowess, dirty, spindly guitars and John Rossiter’s manic vocals. This could be your new favorite band. Start the love affair with “Saganism vs Buddhism.”
