Jet West (“Wake Up”)
Seven years into their career, San Diego locals Jet West are still bringing their own flavor of beach rock with as much heart and soul as ever. After multiple San Diego Music Award nominations and sharing the stage with acts like Pepper, Slightly Stoopid, and Authority Zero, their veteran experience shows.
The band’s sophomore effort WAKE UP lays out eleven more original tracks that channel their reggae-infused laid-back rock sound. One of the 11 tracks features a cover song from The Doors “People Are Strange”, which was produced by Kaleo Wassman from Pepper and Michael Dumas. The song was recorded at Robbie Krieger’s studio in Glendale, CA.
Opener “Waiting” is a total chill party anthem, instantly singable. The follow-up “Island” features the reggae-rap stylings of Matt Liufau which are the perfect addition. From there, the rest of the album continues flowing in the reggae beach rock vein, veering off slightly toward the pop-rock streams on songs like “Ocean” and “Free”.
The brass work on tracks like “Could You Be” infuse a bit of Mighty Mighty Bosstones-type fun at just the right times. So grab a drink, a beach chair, a few friends, and blast some Jet West at your next party!
