Vernon Wayne – Jazzes

Vernon Wayne – Jazzes
Self released – 2013
Rock, Metal, Alternative, Post
Rated: ***

Spiraling somewhere around educated indie metal and alternative rock Minneapolis formation Vernon Wayne surrounds us with whirling rhythms and flexing beats. Jazzes is their second release and features five tracks that seem to wrestle with postrock influences and mathematical craziness without ever fully taking them to the mat. It’s that constant grapple and tangle that keeps you on the edge of your seat. And with a name taken from David Koresh and that whole Waco debacle you can surely guess how crazy these cats can be. But they do this in such a subdued way that it not only convinces but also makes you believe. It drags you along on their very own trip. And with small tickles from something southern and perhaps hardcorish they keep giving you those punches that keep you restrained. Are you ready to surrender?

  1. It is good. No doubt about that. But I'm missing a bit or heart and soul. Sounds a bit to clean for my taste.
