JAMIE 4 PRESIDENT: The Heartbreak Campaign: LP

Nov 22, 2017

If I wasn’t such a fan of Madrid’s Wild Animals, I might not have come across this band, but seeing as Jamie Ruiz Green fronts both outfits I snapped this up when seeing his other band live recently. Whereas Wild Animals is a raucous, more punk-inspired, band, J4P takes a more relaxed approached with sun-drenched melodies providing a warming and chilled experience. That blissed feeling is shaken up a bit with a couple of punchier songs. And although they are the ones I prefer, The Heartbreak Campaign is still a good all-round album. This is out on too many labels to list so I’m just noting one. –Rich Cocksedge (Bcore Disc, [email protected], bcoredisc.com)
