The Week In Music: Rainbow Jackson, Bleachers, #SELFIE

Rainbow Jackson

“You had me at do you like Tom Petty?”

So begins ‘Perpetual Summer‘, the debut EP from Echo Park band Rainbow Jackson.

Well, they have me. I’ve never had my face rocked off in such a catchy way. Rainbow Jackson tears through six head-nodding, polished pop gems in twenty minutes that sound as though they’ve bounced off basement walls long before you’ve enjoyed them. Not unlike early Tom Petty himself.

Bleachers – I Wanna Get Better

Jack Antonoff from Fun skips and skitters through this first taste at his new band Bleachers. OMGOSH. Hopefully a welcome addition to the Fun family and not the end of the Nate Ruess led project. I hate to think of a generation equating Lena Dunham to Yoko Ono.

The Chainsmokers#SELFIE

Some songs you should just know exist. I imagine this being Baz Luhrman‘s college-age sister, expelling her brand of wisdom. Or, it’s a Friday night at G Lounge.
