THE JANGLE BAND. Edge of a dream


Un segell espanyol, Pretty Olivia Records, acaba de publica una petita meravella d'un grup de Nova Zelanda que es diu The Jangle Band, un nom que ja indica clarament el tipus de música que escoltarem. Escoltar-los per primera vegada i dubtar de si estava escoltant un nou treball dels Byrds ha estat tot u. Rickenbakers de 12 cordes omnipresents i melodies vocals a quatre veus són el segell d'identitat d'aquesta nova banda que edita el seu primer treball de llarga durada. Un plaer escoltar-los fent la migdiada o a qualsevol altre moment tranquil.


In 2014 we released the brilliant “A Thousand Days” LP by the Rainyard, an early 90s quartet from Perth, Western Australia. Saddened to hear that their 2015 reformation was not to be, in their place we got the Jangle Band… 

Lucky for us, this fill-in band featured a dream team of Australia pop musicians (including Jeff Baker from the Rainyard) and even better news was that they decided that it was to be more than a one-off live performance. Even though the members were spread across both sides of Australia, within 4 months they had written and recorded their debut album. We heard it, we loved it, we wanted it. 

“Edge Of A Dream” is an album filled with 10 jewels and 10 reasons for still believing in melodies, harmonies and chiming guitars. It’s the sound of the Byrds, the wit of the Kinks and the heart of the Triffids. 
It’s not a dream, it’s all here, don’t miss it, highly recommended! (Bandcamp)
