8/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 June 2015
This is fun...and a customer has already bought it so that has to be recommendation enough that you should buy it too. They’ve already made two records on Sub Pop.....have you? (ok maybe some of you have). It’s an absolute pop blast of three minute jangle-jingles. Not sure why Sub Pop haven’t released this themselves but they’ll be smarting when they hear the descending chorus to opener ‘Just a Lovely Day’. The infectious music continues with the almost T -Rex style acoustics of ‘Getaway’. Their miniature pop hooks and exuberance most resemble Apples In Stereo in their pomp especially on ‘Got an F’.
It’s nicely produced, not only does it belt along but they have a neat way of distinguishing choruses from verses with a change of guitar texture. Clever huh? I’m also reminded of Ty Segall, The Shins most Elephant 6 bands and all manner of ‘70’s power pop.
9/10 Michael Poser Customer review, 17th July 2015
Can't say how many times I've replayed this album compared to new releases who have had wider releases and more exposure than Jaill. Ever hear a song/album that brings you back to a certain time with certain memories? Jaill has locked up my Summer 2015 with Brain Cream.
The album is filled with short jangly tunes that tickle one's tympanic membranes telegraphing sweet, sweet neurological bursts of energy signals to kickstart your brain to release those feel-good chemicals a la serotonin and dopamine cream.
This is a new lineup with the ever-present front man Vinnie Kircher. He has brought together a fantastic collective of musicians (some with great personal projects for themselves) to really make their sound bloom and more intricate than their previous albums. This is an exciting chapter for the band and a sign for good things to come.
