Jons are a four-piece from Victoria, BC – Patrick Rendell, David Parry, Logan Holmes & Keenan Mittag-Degala – who’ve got a penchant for laid-back, lo-fi, psych-tinged guitar-pop.
Jons’ debut LP, Serfs Of Today (just re-issued by Solitaire Records), brings the mellow, hazy vibes. Their soothing, sun-kissed sounds wash over you with such an ease, like a lullaby, as guitars chime and shimmer, and riffs meander, amid the mellow undulation and frazzled production. Jons’ sound is just so pleasant on the ear, music to get lost in (with), the vocals are easy and practically float atop of fuzzy, mild distortion and warm go-with-the-flow harmonies.With the aid of iPhones and cassette recorders they carve out their own modern day niche, distilled with an endearingly authentic, excellently arranged, mellow, breezy and bright psychedelic sounds.
You can sample the sweet and soothing delights of ‘Don’t Complain’ and ‘Sugarfree’, perfect examples of their incredibly warm and inviting style. If they are to your liking, you can try out Serfs of Today, here.
