EN

This American singer-songwriter used to be the singer of Feeding People, and more recently she worked with The Death Valleys, but now she has her own solo debut out that combines folk, pop, garage and indie. Sometimes all in one song!

The album sounds a bit like the butterflies on the cover: colorful, dreamy or simply erratic (just like their flight). It's mainly arranged with an organ, a violin and some wind instruments. It all is a personal little world for herself and the listener.

On several songs she sings playful and quite naive: Sugar Coated, Butterfly Knives or Make It or Spin. On La Loba she sounds like a gypsy. Mental Illness is quite different and seems like a song that has escaped from an old smoky nightclub. Make It Spin and Sugar Coated stand out for me: catchy and well sung. With great lyrics and well-crafted songs, Jessie Jones delivers a fine debut.

Deze Amerikaanse singer-songwriter was ooit nog zangeres bij Feeding People en recentelijk ook bij The Death Valleys, maar nu heeft ze haar eigen solodebuut dat ons folk-, pop-, garage- en indimuziek brengt. Soms allemaal in één nummer!

Het album klinkt een beetje zoals de vlinders op de hoes: kleurig, dromerig of gewoon grillig (zoals hun vlucht). Het is allemaal hoofdzakelijk gearrangeerd met een orgel, blaasinstrumenten en viool, waarmee ze een eigen wereldje opbouwt, voor zichzelf en de luisteraar.

Op verschillende songs zingt ze speels en naïef: Sugar Coated, Butterfly Knives of Make It Spin. Op La Loba klinkt ze als een zigeunerin. De afsluiter Mental Illness is helemaal anders dan de andere tracks en lijkt mij een song die is ontsnapt uit een oude, rokerige nachtclub. Make It Spin en Sugar Coated springen er voor mij uit: catchy en goed gezongen. Met waardevolle teksten en goed gemaakte liedjes levert Jessie Jones hier een fijn debuut af.
