I’ve personally been obsessed with everything done by Jesse Marchant over the years, wether as JBM, or more recently, as himself. The guy pumps out song after song, each one hitting a special note with me. We’ve already heard a few singles from Marchant’s upcoming, and quite spectacular I might add, new release. I figure we could do with one more to tease the new album so I suggest you check out “Heart of Mine” below and bask in the beautiful glow of the sound. Seriously, this guy is on that “can do no wrong” level for me.
While I’ve been a fan of JBM, or Jesse Marchant nowadays, this brand new single from his latest LP shows such promise that I’m penciling in repeated listens in 2018. There’s a forlorn tone, both in the emotional pull created by the trickling guitar line and the lyrical content. A slight fuzz builds an added layer about midway through the track, giving just the slightest emphasis before settling right back into the natural joy of the song. Whatever he’s writing, Marchant has charmed us a great deal…leaving us looking forward to Illusion of Love (released on January 26th).
The man once revered as JBM simply goes by Jesse Marchant, but what hasn’t changed is his elegant songwriting. He’s just announced Illusion of Love, his latest release, and with that announcement comes this stunning video and single. Marchant seems to have delved deeper into the accompaniment around his style, filling this track with a beautiful piano movement and string arrangements, immersing the listener in the fullest emotional experience; you match that with the powerful video and you have a recipe for success. This new LP will drop on January 26th via No Other.
These lists are everywhere, so you’ll be excused if you just roll your eyes and skip on. But, that being said, we always seem to be way off the mark when it comes to our Top 50 Albums of the Year. Sure, we have some of the sure fire hits on this list like Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten, but don’t even read on if you’re look ing to see where Run the Jewels made it…they’re not there. Sorry not sorry. So, if you’re into arbitrary lists by people who like to push their own agenda, then this list is for you! Read more
