NEW RELEASE! Jebiotto: Love Song Duet
Call And Response Records' second new release of the day comes from synth-punk trio Jebiotto. The mini-album Love Song Duet comes out just as the band are coming off the back of a U.S. East Coast tour and showcases the central friction between the group's punk instincts and their love of pop. I've described them variously as "three punks who set out to be an 80s stadium band but got lost somewhere between Dan Deacon and Sonic Youth," "like Bon Jovi wrapped in tin foil, falling down some stairs," and "like TM Network in a washing machine with some rocks" so you might be able to see a theme emerging there of big, bold 80s sounds that the band can't help but sabotage.
