Jack Boyd – “Rodeo”

“Rodeo” is the opening track off the Fever EP, from Jack Boyd. Here, the Austin, TX-based artist incorporates a fleeting guitar-based undercurrent alongside lo-fi percussion and spacey synths — making for an aesthetic that recalls a more lo-fi, synth-inclined vein of Kurt Vile or War on Drugs. The synths assert more dominance in the conclusion, where the lushly engaging atmosphere really shines. Other EP highlights include the jangle-pop of “Quicksand” and the lovely self-titled track, exuding a post-punk and dream-pop allure reminiscent of Wild Nothing.
