tangyble guitar, catchi
Jean Jacket by TROLLEYVOX is such an ace TRACK- as opposed to a fantasticly written 'song' which is what i usually go for..I mean it dosn't even have a chorus .Broken down,its basically a series of 2 chord verses interspersed with guitar breaks really-but what a gorgeous, dreamy n delightful pop confection it is ! And what a beautiful atmosphere it creates as a whole..
So much to enjoy here..
The cool Byrdsian riff,the seductive whisper-soft vocals from a singer sounding remarkably like The Bangles Suzanna Hoffs..The fab bubbling McCartney bass and the wonderfully poppy "Jean Jacket" BVs littered throughout..The real star here is the guitar tho..Shimmering n cascading luxuriantly from speaker to speaker with a series of utterly stellar cameo's.The ace echoey chromatic bit -so evocative.The brilliant glisteningly transcendent lead breaks flowing
like waterfalls..Reverby n resplendent and all encased in a gorgeously clear technicolour hifi production..
The long pauses of silence before diving back into the endless cyclical signature riff are brave, intentionally humorous and deliciously eccentric, giving the track a strong identity of its own and also the listener a space to dream ..
This is luxurious, airbrushed psychedelic soft pop with a fabulous band performance and a spick n sparkling modern sheen...
A wonderfully decadent full fat pop pleasure f'sure..
