Live @ Sapolil - Red Jacket Mine
What is the Seattle sound? Truth is it changes. Frequently. Garage rock reigned in the mid-’60s. Grunge exploded out of the Emerald City in the early ’90s and the world is still reeling. Today, hip-hop acts like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Shabazz Palaces, and Blue Scholars rule the roost.
Red Jacket Mine sounds like none of these. Led by songwriter Lincoln Barr, this quartet proudly calls Seattle home, but you’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint the guys’ area code simply by spinning their superlative new album, Someone Else’s Cake.
At first blush, this batch of eleven originals seems more like a product of England in the aftermath of punk, when angry young men such as Graham Parker, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, and Messrs. Difford and Tilbrook of Squeeze spilled out of the pubs and elbowed their way into the UK charts. (There’s even a hint of graphic design innovator Barney Bubbles in Shawn Wolfe‘s cover art.) But pay closer attention. Trust me, it isn’t hard. Someone Else’s Cake brims with melodies and lyrics that reveal new, deeper charms with repeated spins.
