CD Review: Jamestown Revival Give Us "Education Of A Wandering Man & Adult Future Is "In The News"

The Jamestown Revival have been quite busy releasing a new album, "The Education Of A Wandering Man," performing live on Conan and opening for Nathan Rateliff And The Night Sweats on their current tour. Their latest album features twelve songs, beginning with the soulful, country-rock flavor of "Company Man." They highlight their latest single with some blues slide-guitar for the slow-build up, sing-along chorus of "Love Is A Burden," before featuring the wonderful harmonies of "Journeyman." Jamestown Revival go all-out country with the classic, bluegrass sound of "American Dream" and add a little bit of soul into their delivery of "Airliner." The acoustic guitars make their presence known on the country ballad, "Back To Austin," before finishing the new album with the Americana blues-stomp rhythm of "Poor Man's Gold" and the country swing of "Head On."

From Toronto, Canada comes the new release from Adult Future titled "In The News." Adult Future, formally known as The Smoking Bells, have created the songs on this album from personal experiences and gave their sound an addictive pop/rock makeover. Beginning with the Bowie-esque sound of "We Start Over," their new eight-song release has a mature modern rock/new wave sound. Adult Future easily draw you in with the emotion of "For K," before finding the perfectly pop/rock groove with "Here But Not Here." The keyboard/guitar wizardry of "Go Ahead And Mess Around" delivers a sonic blues landscape, before closing the album with the stark backdrop of "No Returns," which allow their words to be expressed.
