ASMW – Jotto

The band I discovered this week is Jotto, out of Philadelphia, they have an interesting sound: melodies that are almost Beatles-like, as well as a wet, grimy sound to the electronics, giving it an aged noise. There’s also a good bit of Bob Dylan and The Strokes influences there on the surface.

A bird will fly right into your eye and sing what you regret
A night a name it all seems the same way, too delicate
She’s young, she’s taught and stares as we stalk its all irrelevant
I Just Want to See You
I Just Want to Be You

We wait outside deciding if she lied as if it mattered
She walks on by pretending if she’s shy or flattered
It’s a wife, a kid we, all saw that falling bridge and scattered

Amie Street Wednesday

This week, I’ve rediscovered Big Society, a band whose music I bought back a few weeks ago, along with some other selections.
I’m testing the new player that Mouseclone has been helping to develop. The plugin isn’t finished yet, but should be coming along. In the meantime, I’ve stolen creatively borrowed the working code.
Big Society is headed up by Tom Shields, a singer and songwriter originally from Rhode Island (home of the oldest operating tavern in the United States), who met a fledgling band in Raleigh 15 years ago, and they have been together ever since. The song Silvery Moon has a classic rock feel with a folksy rhythm. I get the feeling of listening to Bob Dylan or maybe early Phish with this one. It’s upbeat, looking forward to the future “with my one true love/curled up by side.”
