Jackson Jackson – ‘Devil In Me’ (Feat. Phrase)
I’m going to confess that I’d never really listened to Jackson Jackson until this one landed in my inbox. I knew they were somehow related to The Cat Empire and assumed they had a similar roots-pop meets jam-band output. Turns out I was completely wrong.
Apparently Jackson Jackson are some sort of electro/folk band – and not in the same vein as, say, The Books. Though they try their hand at dissolving organic/digital boundaries, they don’t aim for high art so much as much as the dance floor. Though it might be too deliberately plodding to really shake up a club, this still sounds like The Presets remixing a quirky folk-pop song. The beats are sparse and not too polished and are just as potent when they drop out and leave the catchy vocal hook to shine.
