Jamboree II: 24 Cents (independent)

Somewhere along the way Mike Trask invested wisely in a Delorean, and if you need proof, Jamboree II: 24 Cents is it—another recording of Trask’s that demands it be played from a dusty turntable. In an age where digital production buffs out any imperfections, Jamboree II doesn’t bear any of those digital fingerprints. This album feels old-timey and authentic—as if it hailed from a time when it was just a musician in a booth with an instrument and a tale. This is a delicate and engaging record that bears repeated listens, and tracks such as “The Way We Left It” and “The Problem Kid” will reel you back in time and again.
