Introducing: The vintage, faded soul of Andrew Jansen — Stream new MJMJ released Loud Sun CS (Release Show Saturday at Icehouse!)
Local music fans will recognize the sounds of Andrew Jansen from his former bands the Dial-Up and Crimes, but he explores a more faded, vintage area with his latest project under his own name. Like the collage sunset of the album cover, the record is pretty while being a bit hazy, familiar yet intentionally off kilter just a bit. Despite the Sunn O)))-esqe title, ((( Loud ))) is anything but. It is a warm journey through psych, folk, rock and garage that sounds like it may have been left in a bottle from the burnt-out sixties and washed up on the shores of the Mississippi.
You can listen to the whole 10 song CS, which is out now on MJMJ records, below. Jansen will be celebrating his new work with a show this Saturday at Icehouse with the Awful Truth. Grab the tape, see the show this weekend. Find out more about the show and RSVP on Facespace HERE.
