New Jam from Jeffrey Lewis & the Voltage
Admittedly, the first twenty seconds of this tune had me scared; definitely tested my adoration for Jeffrey Lewis…so just hold on. Once the track kicks in, you get a steady dose of Lewis’ distinctive delivery working over these catchy riffs and precision drum stomps. I can’t help but compare Jeffrey to John Darnielle, but here there’s definitely an affinity for pop moments that shines through Lewis’ style, which is why I’ve always found a soft spot for his music in my own collection. Catchy and unique, as if you needed anything else. Bad Wiring is out November 1st on Don Giovanni Records.
