Jukebox the Ghost
(Yep Roc Records)
Falsetto voices and strong synthetic lines drive this summer fun album released by Jukebox the Ghost.
“Somebody” starts off with falsetto voices and a head full of steam. The track sounds a little bit like They Might Be Giants mixed with The Killers. The track is on fire and an anthem to wanting “somebody” in your life. The track even features a few “woo-hoo’s!” “All for Love” starts off sounding a little bit like Regina Spektor. The track is quiet, sullen and idealistic. The overall theme of this album could be summarized as growing up and looking for love; this track is the personification of that. “Ghosts In Empty Houses” sounds a bit like Sleeping at Last. A full band track of pop-rock goodness, there’s an anthemic stadium feel to the track as well. Unique sounding vocals complete this song in a gorgeous way.
Don’t let this album of love pass you by without at least giving the online stream a chance!
