Free Album // Jogging – Minutes
I’ve been itching for an opportunity to talk about Jogging on here for a while now and finally my wish has come true. Following the success of yesterday’s one day only free download of BATS‘ mega debut album Red in Tooth & Claw, during which almost a thousand people seized their chance, the Richter Collective have decided to repeat the trick with Dublin emo revivalators Jogging’s 2011 album Minutes.
Anybody familiar with records like Fugazi’s 13 Rooms and Rites of Spring’s self-titled (and really you should be) will feel instantly at home. It’s got Ian McKaye and Guy Piccioto all over it, basically, with some fiddly math rock elements thrown in to give a bit more of a contemporary flair. What really stands out is the quality of the melodies, in particular the strong opening twosome ‘Threadbare’ and ‘Not Simple.’ Download the whole album for free before midnight tonight or just go ahead and buy a copy anyway. You won’t be disappoint.
