Air Con Eden

Air Con Eden is the debut album by Jerkcurb, AKA, Jacob Read. The album is the culmination of critical and commercial success that has seen his songs be streamed millions of times and him play a session on BBC 6 Music for Tom Ravenscroft. Lyrically the album focuses on Read’s real life events with occasional fictitious garnish, whilst musically, Richard Hawley, Blue Velvet and Arctic Monkey’s Tranquility Base & Casino give an idea of where he’s heading.

Night On Earth

Jerkcurb (really odd name isn't it?) is a London bloke who is pals with King Krule amongst other people and there's something of King Krule's late night twangy atmospheres in these hazy compositions but mostly it reminds me of Chris Isaak having drunk himself to sleep in the midday sun, drooling all over his Gibson guitar.
