Andrew Jackson Jihad – Only God Can Judge Me (2008)

May 28, 2008


I only really blogged and discovered Andrew Jackson Jihad a few days ago but I am quickly becoming a big fan. New EP ‘Only God Can Judge Me’ doesn’t stray to far from their effort last year. They still play relatively simple punkish folk songs and they still have some messed up lyrics. The new EP sounds a little darker, not really in lyrical content but musically. Minor chords and a more depressive atmosphere are present for a few tracks and really give a bit of different vibe somewhat. There is a bit more melody going on but the vocals are still pretty rough and raw; Sean sings about ‘not being punk’ and how much ‘growing up fucking sucks’ but while it does get dark; overall there is a sense of hope, joy and redemption. It’s a nice little EP and I’m on the lookout for more stuff from these guys now.
