Jake Meadows has been bouncing around the Australian music scenes for some time. A versatile multi-instrumentalist, he's had time to make a few friends. Like Silverchair's Daniel Johns, who provides vocals on this EP.
The sound on these songs is exquisite. Meadows certainly does have a fine way of assembling his work. He often stashes the heavy electronics in the background, producing a more ethereal, organic sound. But that backlot burbling is always worth an ear.
More going on than might otherwise be expected. Most musicians want their debut to make a bold statement. Meadows is satisfied to worm his way in through the cracks in the door. In the end, I think his approach may be more effective. Quietly absorbing.
