Despite the manila folder and horribly ridiculous professional promo pictures (see above for example) of the band included with the three song sampler disc I got from Dust Jacket, this band from Phoenix, AZ is actually pretty good. Opening the package I was expecting the worst as I popped the disc into my stereo. Instead, I was very pleasantly surprised. I was treated to three songs of impassioned rock with a lo-fi guitar sparkle reminiscent of many of the mid-90’s poppier emo bands. Combining the rambunctious pop sensibilities and vulnerable vocal styling of (say) Mothermania or something like that. I could make a bunch more comparisons to various obscure bands, but (for brevity’s sake) I’ll just say it reminds me of a young and slightly raw Jimmy Eat World or even Elliott. Definitely a promising start from Dust Jacket. Good work guys.
