Like diving a spoon deep in to a tub of partially melted rich chocolate ice-cream the resulting extraction delivers a luxurious blend of glossy sweetness and bitter darkness as the music spreads through the room, filling the ears with emboldened sweeps and arches.

Jesse Dean – (Get You) Outta My Head – Audio

The US Southern Blues creator Jesse Dean released the LP Arkansas Amplifier on the 7th.

A just under fifty minutes – eleven track album in which the listener can take off their shoes and lay with toes happily soaking in the breeze of Arkansas Amplifier (available on bandcamp) as the lightly textured combinations of whirling guitar and percussion travel betwixt each other, whilst keys and bass gently roll the lawn as an easy to engage vocal lounges across the ears.

Jesse Dean delivers a sound which would be easy to dismiss as music for an elevator, yet, underpinning the material are the layers of the compositions which in totality offer far more than is the case of the individual elements and worth the time to get to know.

A little lighter of shading than material I normally ask you to tarry with, though, I think the funky-hip swivels of the fifth track (Get You) Outta My Head may tempt you in to the concept of Jesse Dean.
