Jets to Brazil – four cornered night

Posted on: March 3, 2009


I almost had forgotten that I own this record, but when “four cornered night” was released  it made my summer, which was the summer of 2000. In the last weeks I listened again several times to Jets to Brazil who still keep their magic for me. In my opinion, this second album brings out the true personality of Jets to Brazil. Along with adding former Van Pelt guitarist Brian Maryansky to the fold (fronted by Blake Schwarzenbach (ex-Jawbreaker) with bassist Jeremy Chatelain (ex-Handsome) and former Texas is the Reason drummer Chris Daly), Jets to Brazil add dimension, savoir faire, and one hell of a grand piano to forge ahead with a breathtaking new direction. And just read that list of bands again: Jawbreaker, Texas is the reason, Van Pelt, Handsome… do you have to know more? Three top bands of american indie rock that evolved in the early 90s from the post-hardcore scene (plus post-Helmet project Handsome) and every expectation is fullfilled. Mastermind Blake really opens up here and lets his contradictory gloomy yet hopeful lines fill your head with images of hammocks, lazy rivers, and sunny summer afternoons with nothing to do.

When you become a stranger again…

sounds interesting… also im a big fan of Helmet, so that Handsome data caught my attention…ill give it a listen and tell you later what i think

oops…link is broken…any chance to fix it?

hi perucho, it don´t have access on all my records for a few months, so I can´t reupload it. and because the link is gone so fast I guess the record label putted it down, well, if they think an 8 year old record shouldn´t be published in the net, I will respect it and won´t re-upp it. but you can find the record on several other blogs with other hosters, a lot of links to search engines you can find on the right sidebar
