…he’s on fire, MILLAR JUKES Millar Jukes LP
Millar Jukes LP is available at Bandcamp, Apple Music, Tidal.
by Walter Price
The debut self-titled LP from Melbourn-based, Scottish-born songcrafter Millar Jukes is a brand new take on what neo-soul can be. Void of any paint-by-numbers formulas here, the 11 tracks, produced by Lachlan Bryan, transition between a vast array of styles with its intricate arrangments and it’s as emotional and funky in parts as it is brilliantly eccentric in others.
You Don’t Know
Read Your Mind
Talk To Me
Call My Name
I Don’t Need Your Love
No matter if you’re a fan of Lukas Nelson, Mayer Hawthorne, D’Angelo, and/or Michael McDonald you’ll find something to dig on this set. Again, the magic of this album is its nonconformity. With its blending R&B, Americana, Blues, and old school Pop, some of the highlights include, “Be Mine”, “Last Night”, the slowburn “I Don’t Want Your Love”, and “No More”.
Critics and fans alike are already in love with this release and you can stream the full LP as well as see the music video “No More”, directed by Tomas Busby, now at the GTC.
