Stone Jack Jones is the descendant of four generations of coal miners and here he explores the hardness of the coal mines amongst other mysteries of suicide and dogs. It features many a Lambchop on backing duties but its a dark album as you may imagine from the subject matter.

Jones plays a kind of off-kilter folk with plenty of wierd discordant notes that make it an uncomfortable but intriguing listen. Everything sounds on the verge of falling apart and its hard to know who quite to compare it to. Certainly the dishevelled folk of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds springs to mind, there’s a Tom Waits-like vibe to some of the more angular compositions and I suppose you could link it into some of Bonnie Prince Billy’s darker hues.

Some of the tracks have an old fashioned traditional feel but elsewhere there are moments of light and are almost upbeat. ‘Way Go Wrong’ for instance is lovely with chiming guitars and sweet female vocals on the chorus bringing to mind The Triffids or perhaps The Go-Betweens. ‘Anyone’ however is as bleak as it gets and beautifully so.
