REVIEW: Jed And Lucia’s “It’s A Wonder” (EP)

Photobucket This is what happens when you live in a home full of easy listening, Brazilian, and folk music, and you realize “hey, let me electrify all of this.”

It’s A Wonder (Ubiquity) is a new EP by Jed And Lucia,to take in various natural and organic sounding music and push it into a modern, clean and fresh electronic landscape. With production done incredibly well, including incorporating various things like tape hiss and sound clipping to make it a part of their deliberate happy accidents, all of this is comforted by the vocals of both Jed And Lucia, to where it ends up sounding like Jackie & Roy. The music is definitely an ode to the past, where one might enter a good thrift store and just raid the racks for space age and/or easy listening music and twist it up. It’s a bit like Portishead but without the misery & gloom. Again, like a modern day Jackie & Roy, and it’s a style of music that definitely pans out some of the crap being released as of late.
