Music review of the “The Invitation” album release from Jobbaloon.
Psych pop/indie rock duo Jobbaloon have a truly fascinating new album out. “The Invitation” is fun metaphysical, pop frolic, beautifully produced and full of dreamy ideas and extremely clever asides.
The music is an epic mix of sonic fusions, rhythmic romps and melodic, lyrical meanderings.
The album has gorgeous purposeful vocals, baroque and dramatic and exquisitely manipulated. This is an album of dark and slightly demented pop, but with an unexpected sweetness that belies its complicated themes.
“The Invitation” holds a highly inventive, deeply sexy and totally irresistible eight tracks. I dare you not to be hooked from the cheeky “Intro.”
Oh how I love to do music reviews on artists that don’t take themselves too seriously, even when it’s clear that there is a level of artistry, craft and thoughtfulness that we certainly should.
There’s a distinct 80s vibe, the good 80s of course, the English 80s, none of that big haired rock US stuff.
Jobbaloon has created a summery sound track, full of delightfully, sweetly sung angst. complete with a brilliant video for their single, “Days.”
It’s all gorgeously cinematic, drizzled with sound track-esqe imagery and haunting harmonies…love, love, love it!!!!
