Jackson Scott Unveils New Song ‘Together Forever’

Screen Shot 2013-07-12 at 12.51.39Another sublime cut of dreamy guitar pop from Jackson Scott’s stunning debut LP Melbourne has just surfaced online.’Together Forever‘ initially melds thick, sticky, guitars with a downtempo beat. These make way first for Jackson’s inimitable vocal delivery and then, finally, for more ethereal, spidery, reverb-drenched guitar lines.

Fat Possum will issue the album in Europe on 9th September. It’s a refined bedroom pop record which pitches Jackson somewhere amidst the other-worldly stargazing of Sparklehorse and the determined singularity of Neutral Milk Hotel and Mellow Gold-era Beck. In addition to ‘Together Forever’, fans can also hear the songs ‘That Awful Sound’ - recently stamped ‘Best New Track’ by Pitchfork – and ‘Sandy’.

Jackson Scott has developed out of a weird audacity; bending spoons with apocalyptic melodies, sugared with solipsistic textures. How did the world conceive this young cosmonaut?  A college dropout with a 4-track and a one-track mind.  A listener and a conceiver.  His voice, whether pitched up or androgynous, speaks of a still life. But painting is meaningless, songs irrelevant, aura outdated if you are a revivalist. Jackson is not.

The upcoming debut Melbourne (released 9th September, on Fat Possum) – conspired out of isolation, deprivation and hunger – shows we’re all alone together, sharing the same tragedies, ecstasies and phenomenon.
