“Big Remote’s album Jenkins. provides a Neil Young-like mix of barroom country-rock and fuzzed-out guitars. It’s Americana with touches of out-there guitar, sort of reminiscent of Wilco. The group, which includes Eric Foreman on bass, Stephen Larkins on guitar, Don Morrison on drums, and Jon Cornell on keyboards, has a knack for catchy tunes. All the band members sing. The group writes strong melodies. There are strains of ’80s REM; poppy, radio-friendly ’90s alt-rock, like Everclear or The Refreshments or something; and a bit of ’70s California singer-songwriter stuff, like Warren Zevon; and even a hint of the edgier side of Britpop, like the Wedding Present. At its heart, this music is American, and the strongest tracks are the most country ones, like “Hanging by a Thread.” The album doesn’t offer much in the way of surprises, but it’s all enjoyable, accessible and well crafted—and poppy and familiar enough to worm pleasantly into the ear.”
