Jay Reatard – Blood Visions

March 3, 2008

So in lieu of my post about Ween yesterday I thought I would make all my posts this week related to the upcoming Golden Plains Festival happening this weekend. If you don’t know it’s the ‘sister festival’ of Meredith Music Festival, it happens at the same venue (the middle of nowhere) and last year it was really really great. Also Jay Reatard, is playing there.

Blood Visions is 15 songs in 30 minutes. Fuck yeah. Jay pretty much just rocks the fuck out for the entirety, playing his own brand of garage punk with ferocious energy. The songs are (surprisingly) very well written and a lot of them are catchy as hell, with some excellent pop hooks hidden under all the noise. It’s loud and crazy but it’s also full of great melodies and immediately fun. My Shadow, is a garage style pop tune with amazing hooks but it also just rocks the fuck out. An album highlight. I hear that Jay is meant to be absolutely mental live so I look forward to writing about him after the weekend. Check out some songs below.
