What I Heard This Morning: Jaill

If you found credibility in the attempted New Wave dance rock persona of The Killers, Jaill may make you reconsider your position. Sub Pop’s Jaill just released their debut album, That’s How We Burn and its two singles, “The Stroller” and “Everyone’s Hip” are based in a friendly variety of guitar-immersed indie rock/post-punk. Nothing particularly new about this, but Jaill is catchy and infectious in a melodic manner of speaking. “The Stroller” in particular owes a good amount to Joy Division’s “A Means To An End.”

”The Stroller”

”Everyone’s Hip”
