IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ll lay it out for nice and simple; Jonezetta is that smooth talking new student at school that is instantly friends with everyone. You would never know they were the newest band on the Tooth and Nail record label. Jonezetta are not messing around, they take Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”pop punkÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?/Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?indie popÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? and cram a whole lot of energy into every song. The record is infectious and just flat out fun. It should get should get at least a few people dancing.
This record hits hard, like I said Jonezetta are not messing around, they intend to bring the fun, dancey rock music. The first six songs on Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”PopularityÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? come in strong and donÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢tÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ let up until you get to Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”The love that carries meÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? which, even though slower does not lose the foot tapping drums.
My favorite song on the record would definitely be Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”CommunicateÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?. It starts out with acoustic, and electric guitars and vocals then having the entire band slide into the mix. The chorus of the song Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Isabelle, Isabelle itÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s a long way home, to communicateÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? is one of the infectious parts I was referring to, It gets in your head and by the end of the song you singing along. The record flows very smoothly into the next song Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Man in a 3k suitÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? which sports [The Killers] reminiscent keys.
I knew Jonezetta was a talented band and that this was a pretty good debut album, but I didnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t realize how much I like the record until listening to a few times. I think people will like this after the first listen but I also think they will enjoy it the more they listen to it. This is no doubt worth peopleÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s ten bucks. Please support the band and go out and grab Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”PopularityÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?
