ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American roots-rocker Jackslacks is in fine form with his sixth release, entitled “Farm Jazz.” Collaborating again with San Diego State University jazz prodigies, Eric Hutchinson, Dave Votel and Alejandro Aste-Nieto, the new album serves up slamming Americana grooves meshed against thought provoking lyrical content and effective harmonies.
Superb musicianship and musical flow, equal parts grooving, equal parts rocking, providing the perfect connection for people who enjoy the hooky, danceable, and never say die attitude of original rock and roll music.
Title track “Generations Hypnotized” is a cheeky harangue to a culture held in thrall of their smartphones. Jackslacks’ rockabilly bedrock remains, with some added color: melodic Hammond organ from Aste-Nieto, a scorching guitar break from Hutchinson, Beach Boy-ish backing vocals from Votel, and rhythmic flute patterns from guest artist Ian Johnson.
“Don’t Mind Me” keeps things moving in the right direction with an earthy groove driven intro against steady flowing rhythm, well placed acoustic guitar chops painted against a hooky chorus. Here the sound bestowed by the amplifiers is refined and layered and fills the space peacefully and unobtrusively with a timber that is simply infectious.
Also worthy of note is the crisp production work (Mike Kamoo), which does a definitive job in highlighting the band’s strengths.
