Wesley Jensen – “Carpenter”


Inspired by ’60s pop, folk, and alternative – with an added affinity for modern production – Wesley Jensen is an emerging artist from Denton, TX. His track “Carpenter” was released today, showing a bright and melodic sound. Dreamy keys and rollicking guitars start out, as stabs of icy keys emerge alongside Jensen’s spirited vocals. The re-emergence of the backing key effervescence and guitars signals a fun hook, one that reminds me of Cullen Omori/Smith Westerns. I look forward to hearing more from Wesley Jensen, as this track and his new EP Something Else (streaming below) are very enjoyable.

“Carpenter” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2018’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop 2018.
