JJ McGuigan "Dissociative"

Artist JJ McGuigan has a new EP available titled “Dissociative.” I was able to listen and really loved the track “Desperate Eyes” (number 5 in the lineup). The ambient intro is stirring – when the voice comes in, it’s breathy, almost like a hazy dream in which the person is drifting in and out of sleep. The guitar comes in strumming one note at a time which creates a distant and rhythmic feel. This music feels very at home with bands like “Love Life,” it has a slow but somewhat punkish feel to it which comes together very nicely. Another aspect to this song’s credit is the fact that I love the attitude of the drums; it sounds like sampled machine guns that the vocals just float over.  The entire EP is more than worth a listen and I’m happy about being able to recommend it.
