Slow Jets

Slow Jets

Slow Jets sound like a really early, but sort of British and way more punky Death Cab For Cutie. You can listen to their album, “Exit The Age” on their BandCamp page for 10 tracks of what they call rock, pop, post-punk, or punk rock. Decide for yourself which of those terms apply to which songs.

I like the reverse guitars on the album’s title track. I also like the line, “I don’t want to work, don’t want to shave.” This is slacker post-punk pop rock. This is a really great track, but it’s not my favorite.

My favorite track is probably “Seek The Invisible”. It’s the sixth one on the album, and it was the first one to make me, while simultaneously talking casually to a friend on Facebook, think, “Am I listening to a band from my iTunes that I already love, or am I still listening to somebody I’m going to write about?” It’s more than solid. I recommend that one as a first exposure to Slow Jets.

Man, after listening to “Seek The Invisible” I really look at this band differently. I don’t know how I got that Death Cab comparison earlier. Start on track six and make your way through the rest of the album before going back to tracks one through five. “Mirrored Drives” is really solid too. I wonder if these songs are arranged chronologically in the order that the band arranged them? In any case, be sure to check out Slow Jets on BandCamp.
