US artist Jack Budd blends live and synthetic elements in a way that skirts both popular and underground music, and the result is uniquely awesome. With a menage of rhythms stolen from pots, pans, shovels, and living room chairs, Budd’s music is graced by his raspy voice, which is as much calming as it is haunting. "She Is So Modern" is a simple, breezy love song filled to the brim with horns and hand percussion, while tracks like "Mix Tapes" and "Hope Like Forever" show Jack's innovative stylistic approach. He brings us music in the Electo, Indie, Pop, Rock, and Glo-fi genres.
Jack Budd's music could be described as a cross between Animal Collective, Modest Mouse, and Peter Gabriel. As versatile and mysterious as the author, his songs can have the feel of a smokey late-night tango, lazy naps on a southern porch, or a sobering stroll through a haunted tool shed. And if that weren’t tantalizing enough, the listener is then black-bagged and dragged along to a Caribbean barbecue!
