"Through Tough Thoughts" C33
(Antiquated Future)

With this release, PDX’s Antiquated Future label continues to promote heady, demanding artists who aren’t complacent in relying on the age old tropes and arrangements that their ancestors developed; naw, fuck that!

Jordan O’ Jordan’s ‘TTT’ sounds like every progressive Bower Birds song ever, but constantly, and not just as an explorative track between catchy hits. JOJ ain’t about the hits, but them squiggly spaces between, and, for that, this album is a worthy study item in American Singer/Songwritery.
