Jeff Angells Staticland
Jeff Angell’s STATICLAND “Let’s leave everything behind and ride into the undefined. I made up my mind, and if you’re so inclined, I need a witness.” (High Score)
Jeff Angell’s STATICLAND will release its self-titled debut album May 6th on UDR, a captivating menagerie of songs that effortlessly shift from raucous, snarling, barn burners to moving Stones-inspired ballads that you will want to play on repeat. Produced By Grammy award winner Vance Powell (Jack White, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, Seasick Steve), the sound is that of a provocative, imaginative blues rock which breaths new life into the genre both sonically and stylistically.
The songs swing and shuffle savagely. They are dynamic and diverse, and while each stands as an achievement on its own. Together they provide an ever-changing escape into a variety of audio environments, with Angell's narrative and vivid imagery lighting the way.
"While we were writing the songs for this record I was having some strange dreams.” Angell remembers. “I usually write narratively or autobiographically. There is still plenty of that in this record, but I also wanted to bring some of what I remember from those dreams into the songs as well."
Angell’s voice can best be described as lived in. It is smokey, versatile and articulate but most importantly, believable. With it he tells the stories of colorful characters, contemplates relationships, and shares dreamy imagery, all the while spurring the listener to expand on the limits we allow ourselves to go.
