J-Tex - Misery
(Heptown Records HEP044)
From Aural Innovations April 2010 update
This is basically a solo acoustic guitar record with a few tracks with additional instruments like banjo and Ukulele. My daughter said she really likes this one a lot better than most she had heard lately. A lot of really cool, western influenced tracks with down to earth themes and just cool songs. This was recorded in Lund, Sweden but it could easily have been recorded in a little shack in Mississippi or Tennessee. A very organic and fantastic record and I don’t normally listen to music like this but I fuckin’ loved it.
