Back to LA we go for a new one from rising indie outfit Mt. Joy, who I’m hoping I’ll get to catch when I make my annual pilgrimage to Austin for SXSW in March. They fuse indie rock with rootsy folk on Jenny Jenkins, lifted from their forthcoming full length. The dusty drawling song feels a bit like a stripped down Cold War Kids track. The band, who were selected by NPR as one of their 2018 Slingshot Artists as well as Yahoo’s 10 Artists to Watch, showcase their versatile sound on the song, having given us a plethora of fine tunes in the past including the more jazzy soulful Sheep. Jenny Jenkins is a wistful and nostalgic ballad, and though it’s not a cover of the Jerry Garcia and David Grisman song of the same name, it is very much connected to it. Stream/download the single, here. Mt. Joy’s self titled debut album arrives on March 2nd via Dualtone Records.
