Holy crap. Asheville, NC’s Jackson Scott is up to something really awesome here. The single “That Awful Sound” from his forthcoming debut is a warbled slice of weird lof-fi indie pop with old school Weezer-like guitar riffs and a steady groove. Although Scott’s palette is on the weirdo DIY tip, his melodies are big and catchy. If there is more like this on it, his album could be very rad.
Scott’s debut album Melbourne will be released via Fat Possum this summer.
