July’s Album: Jake Bugg

For July I have chosen the debut album for Jake Bugg. I admit that I caught the train on this one a  it late; a year after most. Basically I thought that he was just another label puppet that was a flash in the pan. This time around I’ll admit that I was wrong. After hearing a couple tracks that I liked I decided to give the album a go and I’m happy I did.

There is an often comparison between Bugg and Bob Dylan. This I can see but have tended to like him a bit more to Paul Simon.

The track that earned my attention was Seen It All, and grew from there. Jake Bugg can sing and can write brilliant songs as well. He’s versatile in how he approaches songs. Sure he sounds like a few legends out there but what’s wrong with that? You have to pull your influences from somewhere.

I like Jake Bugg. Apparently he’s working with Rick Ruben on his next album which will be a good match. In the mean time I hope you enjoy his first offering as much as I did.
