Makin Waves Record of the Week with Jackson Pines

Makin Waves Record of the Week is “Lost & Found” by Jackson Pines. The Jackson-based roots duo’s follow-up to last year’s “Purgatory Road” will performed Aug. 30 at benefit for the Project Matters mentorship program at Manasquan United Methodist Church.

 

Jackson Pines’ tasty new four-song EP, “Lost & Found,” is a follow-up to last year’s exceptional debut, “Purgatory Road.” The record’s haunting, spare rhythms and dark emotions kind of sound like Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska” if it had the spare E Street Band instrumentation of “Tunnel of Love.” The closing “Undone” is the standout because its particular brand of haunting emotions -- intensified by a Hank Williams-like howl -- does what good folky blues is supposed to do, make you want to listen again and again until you have the song memorized so you can pass it onto someone else.

I also really like Jackson Pines’ driving harmonica-fueled “You Will Never Understand,” which honors and continues the tradition of country music far more effectively than what passes for that style and genre nowadays. Hear these songs live when the Jackson-based roots duo play a benefit for the Project Matters music mentorship program on Aug. 30 at Manasquan United Methodist Church. You also can see Jackson Pines at Asbury Park’s Indian Summer Festival the first weekend of fall and the Makin Waves Roots Fest on Nov. 18 at Langosta Lounge and Asbury Park Yacht Club.
