Jackie Brown Jr – the rock’n’soul quintet of Maddy Mallis, Michael Brady, Gideon Traurig, Rhyan Clapham and Ben McDermott from Sydney (Australia) released the LP Over Abroad on the 26th.
A vibrant seven track release (available on bandcamp) which shakes up the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to create songs that vary both in style and instrumental emphasis that enables them to deliver roughly twenty eight minutes of music that, like a chameleon changes, colour palette and brushes through its journey creating an album which can be both dipped in to one track at a time, though more enjoyably approached in its entirety.
