ATX Spotlight: River Jones Tune Blows Up

riverI’m not going to say Lorelei Linklater’s participation in this new River Jones song helped make this song blow up (though it might have helped) because the song’s just one of those tracks that’s too good to ignore. It’s the sprawling sort of indie rock that reminds me of the last Girls LP; the vocals by both performers really fit the emotional pull of the song…Jones has a cool drawl while Linklater has this dreamy R&B touch. You’ve also got to take note of the production itself, there’s not a single musical touch that oversteps it’s place in the song, knittingthe musical textures together for maximum pleasure. No idea where or when this will appear, but it’s a damn good track, and sometimes that’s enough.
