Janglewaves + bonus EP
 
Janglewaves + bonus EP Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $13.00
Artist: Skytone
 
 
Quantity:
 
It’s still winter, so what is The Beautiful Music doing releasing the perfect summer album, one that you can play on the beach or blasting with your windows rolled down on the way to the best surfing grounds - the kind of music you need in the winter, to warm your heart and then by the time summer comes, they will be instant classics. This is Skytone’s third album for TBM label, and it just might be their best yet. 


Skytone are Rodney and Darius Doddridge, brothers with a keen ear for melodies that pack more sunshine and warmth per decibel than you would have thought possible. At times, they’ll remind you of (and are possibly inspired by) bands such as Lloyd Cole, Edwyn Collins, Trash Can Sinatras, Teenage Fanclub, The Cherry Boys, Superstar, Allen Clapp, The Incredible Vickers Brothers as well as Simon & Garfunkel, ELO, XTC, and the Everly Brothers.  “They don’t really fit into a neat little package for consumers, but that’s precisely why I love the group.  Sure, ‘Jangle Waves’ has the aforementioned jangling, but there are also moments that lean towards swinging croons like in ‘Second Hand Shops.’ They almost adopt a beach vibe with ‘Missing You’ only to move into dreamy pop territory with ‘Lonely Holiday.’ Throughout, you’ll likely find yourself enveloped in warm harmonies reminiscent of the sun you’re trying to avoid outside your window; it’s the power of pure pop at its best!” – AustinTownHall.com  “Evoking sun-dappled drives to the lake on a summer day or wine-on-the lawn evening with good friends, and leavened with jangle and hints of ’70s soft rock, this is a welcome addition to the summer playlist.  While they do, indeed, pack a lot of jangle in their compositions, dream pop, power pop and a liberal dose of beach pop all live harmoniously, melodically, and pleasingly.  Great pop, wonderfully laid back, done with a croon and the jangle is in a 80’s sort of way, although the harmonies are very much mid 70’s Pop Rock.  The guitar riffs are very C86, but there’s plenty more thrown into the mix.” -  WhenYouMotorAway.blogspot.ca  “Another brilliant jangle-pop outfit in the same sort of melodic mold as their label mates The Yellow Melodies and Armstrong” -  Janglepophub.com  COMES WITH A MIMITED EDITION BONUS REMIX EP WHICH BOASTS SEVERAL VERSIONS OF SONGS FROM THE ALBUM AS RE-IMAGINED BY THE LEGENDARY HOUSE CATS’ JOHN GIRGUS.  GREAT!!
