Although St. Louis quartet Jailbox have been doing the rounds since 2009, this is my first listen.
It comes as no surprise they have supported the likes of Vetiver, Devendra Barnhart, Still Corners and Daniel Johnston to name a few.
‘Whole’, follows a hiatus from the band who returned in 2015. Released via FarmerTanz Records, this is a welcome addition to the year’s slow tempo canon and is music to simply hang your heart on.
A song like this should be a runaway success and I hope that others sit up and pay attention.
You will ultimately find a rewarding balance here between something deeply personal and sheer sonic fulfillment.
