Jeads – “Left Alone”

By Will Oliver, February 14th 2020 Listen Stream

Jeads (full name Jonathan Eads) is an ambient electronic solo artist out of Bellingham who takes sounds from the most unlikely of places, finding their beauty in a unique way. Take his new album Under the Veneer, in which he relied on an old rusty music box as the album’s main instrument.

This is not merely a gimmick, instead, it’s a source of inspiration, one that radiates with warmth, beauty and truth throughout the album.

Take the hypnotic lead-off track “Left Alone,” which operates with a highly atmospheric and trance-like state that evolves as it goes along, using the music box as a launching pad of sort as it morphs into something else entirely every step of the way.

The whole album can be streamed and purchased at Bandcamp but you can stream “Left ALone” right now below.
