WILL JOSEPH COOK YOU JUMP I RUN LP VINYL EP NEW
2. Streets of Paris
3. Daisy Chains
4. You Jump I Run
Will Joseph Cook is a man with two first names, but his music is distinctly singular, and this EP of his is going to put him on the map. One of his latest singles, Ã¯Â¿Â½MessageÃ¯Â¿Â½, is one of those songs that you may not have had on your radar, but the moment it greets your ears, youÃ¯Â¿Â½re instantly questioning where youÃ¯Â¿Â½ve heard it before. This phenomenon isnÃ¯Â¿Â½t because Cook is making music thatÃ¯Â¿Â½s predictable, but rather, because the beauty in the notes will undoubtedly conjure up some of your happiest memories listening to other greats in indie-rock. The EP tracklist also features Ã¯Â¿Â½Streets of ParisÃ¯Â¿Â½, and not only will it make you fall in love with the budding artist even more, but it also showcases CookÃ¯Â¿Â½s range perfectly.
New to the party here is Ã¯Â¿Â½Daisy ChainsÃ¯Â¿Â½ and Ã¯Â¿Â½You Jump I runÃ¯Â¿Â½ (the EPÃ¯Â¿Â½s namesake). Both songs are worthy additions to the project, and itÃ¯Â¿Â½s clear that no single song rode in on the coattails of another. Ã¯Â¿Â½Daisy ChainsÃ¯Â¿Â½, for example, strips things down to the lowest common denominator, and can trace its lineage to material from bigger names like Max Frost and Local Natives. Lastly, we have Ã¯Â¿Â½You Jump I runÃ¯Â¿Â½, and while itÃ¯Â¿Â½s up for debate on whether Cook saved his best for last (weÃ¯Â¿Â½re having a tough time picking a favorite from the EP), thereÃ¯Â¿Â½s a clear sense that heÃ¯Â¿Â½s all about finishing up strong and isnÃ¯Â¿Â½t about to tack on a fourth track simply for its own sake. No, this is a standout offering and could have easily been a single as well.
