Jake Bugg's Album #02: Shangri La
« on: January 15, 2014, 01:41:01 AM »
Did somebody say he's like the new Dylan? Possibly. But Bugg is far more than a wannabe: he started to write songs at the age of 14, played at Glastonbury when he was 17. Released his first album at 18. And just last year, he released his second album Shangri la which was produced by Rick Rubin. Wild guitars, haunting vocals and strong songs such as “What Doesn't Kill You” and "Slumville Sunrise" are just some of the things you’ll be able to discover on this album.

His voice invests ballads (“Me and You”), finger-picked reflections (“Kitchen Table”, "A Song About Love") and lonesome reveries ("Pine Trees", “Storm Passes Away”) with surprising authority.

Despite the first impression, Jake Bugg’s songs prove that this young man wasn't born into the wrong era. He wouldn't prefer to hang out with Dylan, Hendrix, The Beatles or Donovan. No, Bugg makes contemporary music. Even though his old heroes manage to shimmer through in songs like “There's a Beast and We All Feed It” or “Kingpin”, Jake Bugg manages to unite retrospective and modern coolness.

Share ko lang kung pno ko nakilala si Jake Bugg. I heard his song "Lightning Bolt" from a Gatorade commercial for the olympics. So I googled him up. And I was glad I did. Hindi ko na matigilang makinig sa kanya. Haha. Astig kasi ung music niya parang akala mo matagal ng nag eexist. Kung di mo kilala aakalain mong kanta ni Donovan or Bob Dylan na nirevive lang.

Back to the album. In my own opinion, the first album was better. If i am not mistaken the first album debuted at number one on the UK album charts last 2012. This second album charted 3rd last year. But still, he's a great musician! He writes and sing his own songs. He's wicked with guitars. Share ko lang, Ive watched his cover of Killing Floor by Jimi Hendrix. He's really good.

I recommend you guys na pakinggan siya.
 :-D  :mrgreen:

Nice Stratocaster. :) sa tingin ko mas maganda nga yung 1st album niya kasi more on acoustic guitar gamit niya. Dito kasi sa second album medyo mas maraming electrics. Hanep nmn siya sa electrics pero mas gusto ko siyang tumugtog ng acoustic songs. Siguro un ung hinahanap ng tao sa album niya ngayon. Pero very well appreciated naman ang album niyang to. Last november lang nirelease pero nag gold agad nung december. Haha. Tsaka. astigin tong si Jake ha, ang drummer niya sa second album niya e si Chad Smith ng Red Hot Chili Peppers.  :mrgreen:
