- Tastes The Broom by Happy Jawbone Family Band
8/10 Mike Staff review, 06 February 2013
Happy Jawbone Family Band are a six-piece who are apparently scattered all over the place, “Brattleboro to Boulder”, and yet somehow manage to be fairly prolific songwriters with over 100 songs spread over a series of CDs, tapes and LPs in the last five years or so. They’re recording their latest with Woods/Meneguar visionary Jarvis Taverniere and the good people at Mexican Summer have been kind enough to put together this retrospective of highlights from their previous releases for those who need a catch-up.
The songs collected within are of the shambly NZ-inspired indie rock variety with a bit of a lo-fi psych-folk bent like Woods, or pre-synthpop Ducktails with a touch of ramshackle earnest weirdness like they’ve got Russell Hoke in to record everything. At its loosest and most obnoxious it’s almost like a cross between the Danielson Famile and The Frogs! It’s a bit twee in places, but always too weird and lo-fi for that to annoy me. Wacky, stumbling, sing-song acid-fried pop with an unwavering confidence in itself, collected here free of the inevitable chaff for a totally enjoyable and consistent LP.
