Album Notes

“The True Jacqueline is the only thing I listen to when it's time to destroy Tokyo.” - Godzilla

They've been called indie rock Cannibal Corpse, a slightly more tweegaze Led Zeppelin, and the Denzel Washington of local New England bands. Musically complex and emotionally direct, The True Jacqueline split the difference between mammoth alternative rock and lilting indie pop. The drums shred and roar, the bass zips and sings, the guitar rings and rages, the vocals whisper unsettling sweet nothings..

Imagine taking acid and riding a psychotic pterodactyl into the sun while wearing your coziest sweater and drinking your favorite beer. That's what you'll hear zipping out of your speakers when you listen to The True Jacqueline.

“Despite the negative associations, we're all really big fans of The True Jacqueline.”
- The Committee to Rebuild Tokyo After Godzilla Attacks

The True Jacqueline's new album, An Adventure Somewhere Maybe, takes listeners on an emotional tour of expansive sonic landscapes. Lead off track Spirit Stick begins with static white noise of an amplifier. Then massive melodic bass rises like a moon. Drums fire, astral torpedoes ripping across the moon's surface. Layers of guitar explode and pinwheel, forming a blanket of constellations. You've taken the drug of music, and the astonishing high will last about 38 minutes.

There's no harsh buzz here. It's pure euphoria, a perfect new intoxication expertly assembled from years of experimentation with Built to Spill, Dinosaur Jr, Yo La Tengo, Pixies, Sonic Youth, shoegaze, post rock, The Beatles, and samurai-themed death metal. This is the architecture of euphoria, heartbreak, clarity, and confusion.

Penultimate track Subject sounds like Slowdive meets Explosions in the Sky. Generation Ship could be a lost collaboration between Teenage Fanclub and Nirvana. Album closer Air Conditioning crescendos with Sabbath-like heaviness and mid-60s Beatles melodies.

The True Jacqueline makes the kind of music ignorant curmudgeons claim doesn't exist any more – loud, buzzy, catchy, emotive rock. This is three people playing their own instruments, writing their own songs, cranking the amps, and singing about the anxious turmoil of existence while kicking ass and taking names.

“This is the most righteous shit ever, man. I'd take it over cocaine, finger tapping, ninjas, and Lycra any day of the week” - David Lee Roth on The True Jacqueline
