New Jackslacks EP "Other Side" available for digital download at: http://jackslacks.bandcamp.com/
“The “Other Side” is full of invention and wonder; originality combined with allusions to other masters of the genre. Jackslacks really hearkens back to the 60′s sound, with great almost “throw-back” melodies and harmonies. Yet at the same time there is a modern indie, lo-fi vibe bubbling under the hood. This is one of those once in a while albums that comes along and it marks whatever time period you discovered it during, as a positive, warm time. The songs give heed to a time when everyone was welcome, you knew your neighbor, and one more was always welcome for dinner. The sounds here are as good as the best home cooking. You could say that Jackslacks is a little bit quirky and a whole lot of fun. These are real musicians who love music and play and produce their own, disregarding the the corporate rubbish setting the trends today. They are in no way cacophonous as you would expect of this genre sometimes; the “Other Side” is a beautiful blend of nostalgia.”
