A prediction you interpret as positive will end up depleting you. There’s a courage and colorful dichotomy floating all around us, one that projects a quiet emotion to ponder. Why are we all so reliable on the actions of another person? Most likely a person we’ve never met controls the game. These fuck buttons relinquish your soul, and you blast it out through your reactionary eyes. Zack Schimpf out of St. Louis released “Blinding” last night and I’m listening this morning. The song builds you up the side of the mountain in a rain storm. Your heart is what keeps you going, and lately I’m into things with HEART, mainly cause those people seem to actually care about what they’re doing. Zach is putting out all sorts of remarkable tunes on his pages, if I had the time I could devote it to exclusively talking about how his music makes me feel. This new tune is one of the best yet. If you’re into honest sounds, from an unassuming entity, get into this dude. He’ll take you to some pretty cool places, and its a journey you can take for free, just as long as you carpool to his bandcamp page.He released his full length called Comfortable back in March, Bask EP late April and another EP called Turn Turtle, all free. Once the party leaves this summer, and “those” people are still lingering around, play Zach and get to know their story. His music has a way of bringing out the demons even if you only seek to analyze them.

I must admit this track makes me very happy. Its with great pleasure I bring to you Jeffers Win, a 5 person ‘freak folk’ band trying to make a living in the middle of Manhattan, New York. As I listen to this track “Searching For Susanna” I am over taken by this sense of welcomed melancholy, the haunting melodies that come out of the vocals, the ukuleles, the cello , it all wraps me up in some sort of hindsight. This track makes me feel a lot of things about my college days. Those nights when you’re walking home from some party that was over crowded, not very worth it to mingle with everyone. Still you always walk home thinking of that one person you should have spoken to, but you didnt and the night is over. That is what this song brings me, those missed moments.
There is a line in this track, “you can suffer when you’re old”. This really resonated with me. I think in our youth we spend a lot of time thinking about all the bummers that have come about in our lives. There really isnt a lot of time for that garbage, is there?
Jeffers Win makes you realize a lot of things in one small track, no matter what type of person you are. There is this really beautiful dynamic between the two male & female vocalists, their words sometimes don’t match up but you can still some how understand just what they say. The juxtaposition of these mismatched stylings is what brings me so much love with this track. The collective of musicians have only been together since December, and plan on releasing an EP sometime in May. I am told by the lead vocalist that there will be some psychedelic electronic tracks to go with the freak folk they have featured on their BandCamp for free! We’ve seen so much free music the past couple of days, hooray! I hope you enjoy this band as much as I have. Expect more far out things from Jeffers Win.
