Winnipeg artist Jordsy‘s last two EPs, New Age and Shlines, were full of lo-fi folk/guitar-pop that was immediately likeable for fans of ultra-homegrown music. He didn’t receive much exposure outside of Manitoba, but that may change with his next release, Exile in Colour… at least judging by the demos.
The difference? High fidelity beats and a willingness to experiment by stretching the textures of typical pop music – aggressive dance-punk on “Love You So” despite the candy-drop percussion, folk-rock and disco back-up vocals on “Exile,” and dubsteppy wub-wub-wub on “Day.” And on the song we’re highlighting today, “I Go So Let Go,” Jordsy spins still other textures into a thrumming and insistent tune that recalls The Strokes in one ear and curious electropop like Empire of the Sun on the other. All things considered, you could really just call it experimental pop.
And although “I Go So Let Go” is a very fun song, it pales in comparison to the talent for ultra-catchy and somewhat more straightforward pop music that Jordsy displays in full colour on “Soon Enough,” which we named Song of the Day a little while back. Check out “I Go So Let Go” below, then head over here to listen to “Soon Enough.” It’ll get your ass in gear, no doubt about that.
