Artist of the Day: it is rain in my face.
On "Macknowledge," Jones' sings an incredibly tight a capella vocal segment, almost reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel, before the track picks up with a crackly and poppy beat under a subtle guitar line. "Fighter Pilot" opens up with a repetitive guitar line that could have easily been a Dodos riff, before turning a perfect 180 degrees and turning into an bedroom R&B track. I could go on about how truly brilliantly genre spanning it is rain in my face.'s debut is, but I'd certainly recommend that you listen for yourself.
