When I get e-mails from Oakland, CA’s Jackson Phillips, it feels like a breath of fresh air, even before hitting play on the soundcloud link. Here’s our second listen to Day Wave in “We Try But We Don’t Fit In” (following the incredibly debut “Drag“), which today sounded like Youth Lagoon mixed with a generous dose of Generationals.
I didn’t even have to check the Hype Machine top 50 to know “Drag” would be charting on it. Every other blog I follow has featured that song from Day Wave in the past 24 hours, reminding me you can’t just sit on something so good.
Guess I’ll have to react a bit quick when great new bands reach out with their singles. Let’s help get this track climb higher!
