The Dance of the changing Bandnames: Cotton Jones
Who? Cotton Jones, from the previous Cotton Jones Basket Ride, formerly known as Page France
What? Sixties induced folk
Sounds like? The Doors in a folkmood, eh…he reminds me of the M. Ward sound sometimes (very warm)
I usually not blog about bands who are bit more known, just because i don’t see any use in doing what every blog does. Then again, Page France is maybe not that well known, and his current project Cotton Jones not at all. I think the band name change (the last album was from Cotton Jones Basket Ride) has something to do with that.
That being sad, his newest album ‘Paranoid Cocoon’ is an amazingly warm-sounding folk album. Michel Nau’s sound has evolved from a sort of Death Cab for Cutie-like sound to a more folk-oriented approach. I’ll add one song of the new album, which reminds me of the Doors. And also a song of Page France, which is as warm as well.
You can order his new album through Paypal (go to his myspace) or his label Suicide Squeeze (although the flash-pages on that site didn’t seem to work with me. So i just assume they have it) . Also take a look at Quite Scientific, who ahs released albums as well.
