Description

10 indie pop classics. Second album from Michigan pop perfection trio Blue Jeans takes the pocket symphonies of their debut album to a more rugged place. Still approaching sad-hearted indiepop from a place of minimal arrangements, these ten songs bring in shoegaze guitar squall, Sarah Records-esque pastoral jangle, glam thump and New Zealand wistful melodicism, all without losing consistency or overcooking simple pop hooks. On straightforward and arrow-sharp songs, principal songwriter Tim Sendra (Veronica Lake, Madison Electric) and bassist/vocalist Heather Phares weave in layers of vocal harmonies, David Serra provides the rock-solid drumming and Fred Thomas adds in unobtrusive synth counterpoint and deft production twists. The songs fly by short and sweet but the feeling is colorful, melancholy and lasting. "I love listening to the music made by music critics. From Ira Kaplan to Fred Thomas, it has always been rewarding to hear the output of those who write music reviews. Blue Jeans is a band made up of at least 3 music critics on All Music - Tim Sendra, Heather Phares, and the aforementioned Fred Thomas. And really, it sounds like many of the bands Sendra has written volumes about over the years - Flying Nun bands, Saturday Looks Good To Me (a Fred Thomas band) and Comet Gain." bandcampsnoop.tumblr.com. "Mining the sweet-sounding melancholy pop vein we crave and colored with a palette of scrappy muscle, urgent jangle and sharp hooks, the album is a musical statement of a band that has found their stride. The vocalists may smile bravely while their hearts are breaking, but as music fans, we can only smile" whenyoumotoraway.blogspot.com. "It's simplicity gives it this timelessness that listeners will keep coming back to, if they need a fill up on saccharine sweetness" austintownhall.com
