:: Juffage ::
30 June 2011 / No Label Required / Function Records / 8 Trk Vinyl & Download
By Jon Ashley

Jeff T Smith is Juffage, a Canadian multi-instrumentalist now based in Leeds (not sure how that happened...). You can see how the noisy more irreverent musings of his adopted town have rubbed off. “Semicircle” is all about loops, sound effects and live guitars. A bit of Mathematics, a slight hint of prog and the addition of multi-layered vocals provide a good sense of ‘epic’. Some tracks are more electronically biased but his vocalised numbers (cue “Small Fires” / “My Weakness”) are exciting, notable moments – it’s a varied sound that takes him from indie-electro to focussed rock chunks in equal measures and effect.
