Jonquil are back with a new 7 track EP mini album, Whistle Blow, on Acuarela. I was reasonably disappointed with the last album after the infinite joy of the debut. Mind you I've had to time to get used to it and their slight change of direction. This is their first release that ain't an album as well. Two albums in and not a single...I kind of like that unusual approach to chucking your music out there. On my first listen it sounds not a million miles way from the material on Lions. But like I say now I've got used to them sounding more poppy it makes more sense now. There's deffo hints of XTC, Animal Collective and Akron/Family chucked into this weird folk pop tinged hybrid and it totally works. Am keen I have to say. Those who dug Lions will want to check this mother out.
