The Bones of JR Jones (from the album Slow Lightning available on Tone Tree Music) (by Bryant Liggett)
Call the latest from The Bones of J.R. Jones New Wave Roots. Or, you could call it Folk Pop. Descriptors don’t particularly matter, just call it good, unique, or casually uber-listenable. Jonathon Linaberry aka is The Bones of J.R. Jones first record in a handful of years, Slow Lightning is nothing short of experimental Folk music, where hints of Pop rub elbows with casual psychedelic Roots, all delivered with a delightful parlor music mentality. Start to peel back the layers and you’ll find a lot, all delivered under the soft and casual vocal of Linaberry.
From the Indie get-go of “Animals”, The Bones of J.R.Jones lay out something special singing ‘I’m just a lonely boy always wishing on a star’. From that opener, the personal overview continues in the line ‘well my heart’s just trying to kill me’. There’s the trippy and ambient “Blue Skies” and the haunting “Preservation”. “The Flood” drips with a certain sadness, “Heaven Help Me” has a trippy rhythm that’s loaded with boneyard funk, and “I Ain’t Through with You” is a great break-up song, although the person getting pushed away isn’t getting off that easy.
There’s a well-worn soul vibe to this record, that also lives comfortably next to the New Wave rhythms, making the record sound both old and new. Cheers to Slow Lightning, a record that doesn’t sound like anything but itself. (by Bryant Liggett)
