Joe Ziffer Announces Debut, Shares Ouroboros
I tried to dive into some Joe Ziffer background, but there wasn’t a lot out there; I can vouch for his new label, Tenth Court, as they’ve been a reliable spot for great Australian pop songs over the years. Joe’s sound is perhaps difficult to pigeonhole (thankfully) as it seems like its made of two minds. On one hand, there’s this natural guitar energy that courses through the song, providing almost a textural backdrop that allows the track to ride in the rock n’ roll sidecar. But, at the core, there’s this home-recording feel, like a guitar magician just noodling about with a melody in mind, strumming and filling the track with just a teaspoon of traditional pop mentality. Another exciting release coming from the label; Long Shadows hits on November 24th.
