Hey, whats up. You heard of Jacky Boy? Theyre this band from Indiana, and I like em a lot. They put out a record a few years ago that is really good (2017's On Good Terms With Everyone You Know). Kind of vulnerable, but not-too-emo, catchy as hell, fun-and-feeling Midwest rock songs. Anyway, they made a new record called Mush, and it's great! This entire album is built on top of an unambiguous sense of relief. Relief from immaturity, relief to grow, relief to be happy, relief to be free because it makes you happy, these are the recurring themes of the album, and also exactly how it feels when you listen to it. With the addition of Zac Canales waning-Gen X / Millennial Rising MTV-College-Rock guitar fluency, Jacky Boys previous nods to 1990s slackerdom are injected with a new genuine authenticity and exploration. And Mark Edlins emotive, confident drumming betrays his youth without a noticeable care in the world. But the cares are in there. This isnt throwback music. This record is strong and cathartic and speaks for itself. The songs are catchy and fond, the vibration is easy, and the feeling is real. - Mike Adams
