£10.00

BALLADS OF THE REVOLUTION is the bands 10th studio record, and the culmination of 15 years spent defining their unique take on american music. The record begins with an arrangement of a traditional ballad, -nightingale features greenwoods vocals and guitar with the lush, open accompaniment of bob jones double bass and the pedal steel guitar of lewi longmire. Dark falcon is an improvisation and re-mix of a song written and recorded by the LUCKY DRAGONS. Built on samples and loops of the original recording from their marriage records LP -the window including vocals by honey owens, appropriated from the liner notes of a record by the mamas and papas. Side one closes with JOMF original, skylight, which has been a part of the bands live set for a few years, and has been been beautifully rendered in the studio. Side two begins with a brand new song, written and sung by greenwood and owens, -the corner begins with the pulsing bass of a roland keyboard, accompanied by turntable manipulations and the sparse, sting of owens guitar, its dark minimalism, a new classic moment for the band. The cryin sea was written in arhus denmark, during an amazing live set where an enthusiastic audience pushed the band to bonkersville. Featuring incredible guitar work by nick bindeman, and special guest michael dustdevil, who also appears on skylight, and fills out the recording with raw, fuzz guitar. The closing track, -a mania, is one of those rare, JOMF radio friendly tracks. Written and sung by greenwood, with beautiful wah-wah guitar lines by joanne robertson, vocal accompaniment and closing fuzz guitar solo by honey, the songs melancholy, knocking us out. The albums cover features watercolor paintings by tom greenwood, beautifully art directed by james nicholls. JOMF will be touring throughout the year to support the new record.
