RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!!  As most know, we here at Kool Kat Musik are 100% committed to physical product, especially the CD.  Jordan Jones’ fantastic 2019, self-titled debut (previously only available on vinyl/download) is the latest title to be made available for the first time on CD on Kool Kat.  And for the occasion, Jordan has tacked on a song, “Text You Back”, that was not available on the original 2019 release!  “Sometimes, the beauty is in the simplicity. You can put on this album – and within 20 seconds, you’ll either love Jordan Jones – the singer or not.  Not because this is a one trick pony kind of a record, either.  No, on the contrary, there are plenty of twists and turns throughout.  But you’ll know if you love it, because you’ll either get it, or not. This is steeped in a classic power pop sound. Unashamedly catchy, pretty naive and very, very sweet, both in terms of its lyrics and the way it is delivered.  Opener ‘Wrote You A Song for Me’ has a beguiling lead guitar line and an absolutely irresistible melody, and lyrics that – like all the best pop songs – have something relatable. ‘I’ve been wanting you off my mind, with every letter and every line’ he sings here, like some US take on Marc Bolan, ‘but since you’ll never be mine, what a waste of time.’  But the point here is he sounds happy about it, content even.  That continues on ‘Understood’.  Faster, more furious maybe. A little bit like Geoff Palmer of The Connection, but the thought that Jones isn’t quite coming at this from the angle of anyone else, is all over his observation that ‘even strippers wear engagement rings.’  ‘My Somebody’ has acoustic tinges to its sugary, Silver Sun-ish delivery.  ‘Rumours Girls’ has a bit of a Cheap Trick type chug (but then shouldn’t all power pop?) but is written from the perspective of a bloke who knows he’s not good enough for the hip. But he’s not sad about it. It is refreshing to have that perspective.  ‘Waiting’ is more of a troubadour thing, but it combines that with a real interesting guitar line, ‘How To Be’ could really have the word ‘timeless’ attached to it. Not that it sounds dated, more that it just could have come out at any point since about 1950 and sound just right.  ‘Be My Baby’ sort of updates the sound of The La’s ‘There She Goes’, while the truly lovely ‘Do You Wanna Hang Out’ is this album in microcosm. It is just pleasant on the surface, then you realise you have it swirling around your head.  The marching beat of ‘Oh My Heavenz’ sounds like its some outtake from ‘The River’, and it doesn’t have a care in the world. And the vocals are just as gentle as Elliot Smith way back in the day.  Every now and then, a new artist comes along that has a debut so accomplished you wonder just where on earth they’ve been hiding. Jordan Jones is that man. This is brilliant.  Simple as that.” – MaximumVolumeMusic.com  Yep!!  GREAT!!
