5 stars Have your ankles being swankled?

When a band is a blend of being entertaining, powerful and humoristic at the same time, you tell your friends quickly. I got excited at this band because I'm looking for a Gentle Giant-Sugar- Twin-kinda-band. I did find something a bit more complicated than this...

Jeavestone is a band that goes full throttle in what they do. There is no filling and there's very few idea repetition, but you won't get bored. They are skilled musicians (although kinda young) and they have a fondness for bands like Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant but mainly Beardfish or Frank Zappa. The songs are short, packed with punch, features lots and lots of hooks, despite the heavy amount of jazz-folk and a good dose of auto-derision. There is a lot of humor, even in the way they are playing, especially in the fake infomercial about a device that removes and polishes ankles. I laughed very hard, and again, people were staring at me for the wrong reasons.

So fans of Beardfish, please drop whatever you are doing and get this album. A gem.
