JBM (a.k.a. Jesse Marchant)

JBMJesse Marchant, better known as JBM, will release his second LP ‘Stray Ashes’ in four days.

Depressing and uplifting at the same time, his music can stand comparison with Bon Iver’s. His lyrics are all about hearts on sticks or hearts hung from branches in the night, and I’ve promised myself to stay away from such thoughts, but songs like these make me want to be a bit sad for a while. Sadness is kind of beautiful, you know.

Then the music is over, and slowly I cheer up again. I hope he will too, in time.

I’ve attached the first and the last track, but you can listen to the full album here.
