REVIEW: Jeff Runnings’ “Primitives And Smalls”

Jeff Runnings photo JeffRunnings_cover_zpsish8yu2u.jpg You may remember him from his time with the group For Aganst but Jeff Runnings is now going at it solo with his debut album, Primitives And Smalls (Saint Marie). Fans of his dreamy side of music will immediately love what he does on the opening track, “Maze” and that is a bit of code to let you know where he’s headed, an unpredictable journey that will still make you feel like you’re at home. Imagine of Scritti Politti was less about soul and groove and more about rock and new wave tendencies and you’ll get a slight hint of what Runnings is trying. His songwriting is as strong as it has always been and one can make this the continuation of his musical and life journey. Job well done.
