Jackson Reed: Dark Areas of Description

Dark Areas of Description is the sophomore EP from Ontario singer/songwriter Jackson Reed on So Sorry Records. The seven tracks are silky folkrock with nice arrangements and instrumental touches. However, this is an EP that misses the mark on many levels. The drums seem to play no purpose other than to drag down the tracks, the muted production stifles any sense of intimacy and the whole EP could benefit from the tempos being up a little bit. The three instrumental tracks are over simplistic throwaways. An OK record, but not one that engages or encourages repeated plays. Stream and buy Dark Areas of Description at the link below.
