Shiny Things Jackpot

£2.99

Product description

Offering a pleasant blend of alt-country and pop/rock, Jackpot produces a winner on 2002's Shiny Things. Where many bands in their shoes tend to lean too far in one direction, Jackpot balances the two sounds with an uncanny ease. These simple rockers shuffle along with a light and easy bounce that comes off like a country-fried Matthew Sweet. The grizzled lyrics of thin-voiced singer Rusty Miller fit this music perfectly, offering a desperate outlook that stands against the up-tempo lift of the songs. For the most part, this is rock-solid pop/rock that showcases a confident band hitting their stride.
