One of the coolest things for me being a indie music blogger is when new artists reach out to me to review their music, hoping to get a mention on this blog. One such instance occurred a few hours ago when I received an email from Jet W. Lee asking me to check out their latest album Western Nightmare. I tuned in and haven't stopped listening to it since!
Again, based in Chicago, Jet W. Lee is made up of Jesse Johnson, vocals/guitar, Patrick Mangan, drums/vocals and Pierre Achille, bass. This trio brings original alternative rock to the table. Soaring guitar riffs, intelligent story-telling, and a sweet bass groove all wrapped up by some of the coolest drum beats all keep you moving from start to finish.
The band is currently on a 90-day tour of the U.S. in support of Western Nightmare. Check out their show dates... I highly recommend that you make a show if you can. I'll definitely keep track of this band and hope to see them over here on the east coast at some point. It's a show I will not miss!
