"Matt Jones and his bride to be Jenny, sing catchy tongue-in-cheek tunes about roller-skates, love, and space aliens under a haze of pot smoke and 8-bit Nintendo music tracks."

I like this introduction Jonesin', San Francisco-based two piece, made for Their bizzarre irresistible Music.
Hard to label, it goes from Saturday Looks Good To Me / Camera Obscura-ish opus How Much You Wanna Bet, to a sort of electronic-toy bedroom Music loaded on an old Nintendo (Ice cream, Rollerskates, the frenzy on Bummer Summer), accompanied by a casio or yamaha keyboard, and with boy/girl vocals duetting/answering each other, something i totally loved in The Chalets years ago.
Anyway, said this, You wouldn't expect a song like Ghosts No Way, - almost country, with mrs.-to-be Jones sugary singing like a young baby girl chewing bubble gum - or better, listen this, like the virginal Olivia Newton John powered by hot pants in Grease, - and with Matt, dressing a cowboy hat à la Lee Hazlewood, playing a folk guitar, and She at piano. I'm ready to bet They have lot of fun doing this together.
Twee pop vs. 8bit synth-pop, naive, somehow retrò, catchy, - the italian ultra-indie record label Shit Music for Shit People (great name!) presses a tape release (yes, on tape) limited to 100 copies of this brilliant Hi, We're Jonesin', with a related free mp3 download.
Truly lovable, thumbs up, we love people that know how to have fun with Music.

"Matt Jones e la di lui futura moglie Jenny, cantano delle accattivanti melodie ironiche / tongue-in-cheek [> wiki] con a tema i pattini a rotelle, l'amore, gli alieni dallo spazio che escono dal fumo di una pentola e le tracce 8-bit della Nintendo music."

Mi piace questa introduzione fatta dagli stessi Jonesin', San Francisco duo, USA, per la propria Musica, - bislacca e irresistibile.
Difficili da etichettare, - vanno dagli umori di Saturday Looks Good To Me / Camera Obscura in quel gioiellino che ha titolo How Much You Wanna Bet, sino ad una sorta di Musica elettronica/giocattolo caricata su un vecchio Nintendo portatile (Ice cream, Rollerskates, la frenesia di Bummer Summer),- accompagnati da tastiere casio o yamaha, con le voci di Lei e Lui che duettano e si rispondono strofa contro strofa, - qualcosa che ho amato qualche anno fa negli Chalets, ad esempio.
Comunque sia, detto ciò, non Vi aspettereste mai una canzone come Ghosts No Way, - pressappoco country, con la futura Sig.ra Jones, zuccherosa a cantare come una bambina che mastica chewing gomma, o meglio - sentite questa, - come la virginia Olivia Newton John appena infilatasi i pantaloni di pelle in Grease, - con Matt che indossa un cappello di cowboy à la Lee Hazlewood, - mentre suona una chitarra folk, e Lei al piano. Sono pronto a scommettere che i due si divertono da matti in mezzo a tutto ciò.
Twee pop vs. 8bit synth-pop, naive, in qualche modo retrò, - accattivanti, - la nostrana ultraindie Shit Music for Shit People (bel nome!) pubblica questa release su cassetta (sí sí), limitata a 100 copie, con allegato link al download gratuito dei relativi mp3.
Davvero amabili, pollice sù. Qui ci piacciono le persone che riescono a divertirsi facendo la propria Musica.
