#39 Jackson Scott - Pacify

Jackson Scott's first song from his new record, 'Pacify' is so dirty, so lo-fi, so sneakily thought-out, that you'll feel like you found a tape in a car park and took it home.

Just from listening to this week's SOTW, Scott's latest album, Sunshine Redux already sounds like sixties garage, seventies proto punk and The Jesus & Mary Chain. It starts out as spiralling grunge, drenched in fuzz and put down onto wobbly tape, but as you move through 'Pacify's sections you feel like you've been duped; in fact there is a huge amount going on here. When you finally reach the instrumental noise-out the layers of graceless haze lifts and the psychedelic undertones come to the forefront.

Painfully simple drums and layers of guitars fade out, and we were left stunned. Strong stuff. According to Jackson Scott himself, "The song [Pacify] is about being happy even when surrounded by total dissonance. Negative energy turning into positive energy. I was feeling weird and writing the song made me feel better. You can pacify whenever you want."

Sunshine Redux is out towards the end of April on Bloodmoss Records.

The first person to guess what this song is about gets to watch the video before anyone else, right here.

If you know Raw Meat at all, you'll know we like our coffee black, our kittens fluffy, and our hip hop? Well we like that old school.
