The Raft Collect Songs for the Jellyfish EPs
One the last few years, Phil Wilson and his pop outfit the Raft have been dropping these casual singles and EPs, all of which had artwork depicting jellyfish; now they’ve collected all the songs and reordered them to put out the collection titled The Jellyfish EPs. The song’s have been reordered a bit, which gives the album a more cohesive flow, pitting soft-bellied tunes against the more emphatic numbers. I keep getting drawn into “Orion;” it has this power pop vibe if spun through a web of indiepop influences. But, if you’re looking for an album that’s solid songwriting from start to finish, then take a few minutes to spend it with this collection; it’s available via Shore Dive Records.
