Jake Bugg by Jake Bugg

Self-titled debut album by Nottingham singer-songwriter Jake Bugg. He co-wrote most of it with former Snow Patrol chap Iain Archer, and Crispin Hunt of The Longpigs helped out on one track. It was the first flushing of his signature approach which took his Alex Turner style northern scamp-like delivery into full on skiffle mode and spawned iconic tracks such as 'Trouble Town' and 'Lightning Bolt'.

8/10 Jack 17th June 2016

You definitely hear influences from early Bob Dylan and the Beatles (post Hard Days Night), but the overall influence is the Merseybeat era (listen closely though and you will hear an homage or two to Woody Guthrie). Jake Bugg is a great story teller as well as an accomplished folk guitar player. His songs are filled with adolescent angst and ennui, but delivered unpretentiously and with good melodies. Bugg doesn't have the emotional depth that Bob Dylan had upon his debut, but clearly we can't ask too much from the young man.
