Although St. Louis quartet Jailbox have been doing the rounds since 2009, this is my first taste and it is a lasting one. It comes as no surprise they have supported the likes of Vetiver, Devendra Barnhart, Still Corners and Daniel Johnston to name a few.
‘Whole’, follows a hiatus from the band who returned in 2015. Released via FarmerTanz Records, this is a welcome addition to the year’s slow tempo canon and is music to simply hang your heart on. A song like this should be a runaway success and I hope that others sit up and pay attention. You will ultimately find a rewarding balance here between something deeply personal and sheer sonic fulfilment.
