J Church One Mississippi

For the better part of the last decade, San Francisco power pop trio J Church have released a wealth of material including countless singles and several albums. In all that time, they haven't slowed down or started sounding tired. If anything, this new record is a testament to that. At 26 songs, this showcases the band's abilities and growth. The content is introspective and the music matches it; understated moody pop tinged with melancholy. The personal has replaced the overt political that marked much of their early material and it all falls into place on this great record. (Honest Don’s)
