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!
This somber and down tempo tune invokes religious iconography and feeling of loneliness and depression, but ends on a positive uplifting chorus. Using catchy drum percussion and guitar sounds this song is good for teenage drama, reality TV, MTV. Male Vocals, Rock, Psychedelic Rock
A dark almost dirge like sound this song uses synths, guitars beer kegs, pots and pans and other organic percussion. Think underground hip-hop covering a Tom Waits song. Perfect for movies. Male Vocals, Rock, Rock Opera
Using an African Mbira (thumb piano), washed out reverb guitar and organic percussion this chanty song builds slowly and ends with big guitars. Good for MTV, VH1, and reality TV. Male Vocals, Rock, Psychedelic Rock
Electro pop rhythms, hand-clapping, layered and looped vocal harmonies and chants, raw drum beats, and even referee whistles. The result is an amazing and irresistible affect. Very danceable with a Caribbean feel this song is perfect for film and TV. Male Vocals, Rock, Psychedelic Rock
