Whartscape Pre: Jana Hunter

Texas native and current Bmore rez Jana Hunter will be lulling Friday night Whartscapers with the type of detached calm also accessible by taking a nap in your car whilst it's being towed.

Recorded on a borrowed four-track, her Carrion EP (as in the carcass of a dead animal, nice touch) is a simple and haunting assessment of bleak realities, like when you accidentally drop your keys into a river of molten lava and just let 'em go, because man, they're gone.

It would be a shame to immediately dive into Beach House/Mazzy Star comparisons, but yes, that was a first thought. We invite you to watch both JH and BH at Whartscape next Friday, 7/18 at 2640 Space and share a more informed perspective with us afterwards (tickets here).

Bonus Jack Handey deep thought: "The next time I have meat and mashed potatoes, I think I'll put a very large blob of potatoes on my plate with just a little piece of meat. And if someone asks me why I didn't get more meat, I'll just say "Oh, you mean this?" and pull out a big piece of meat from inside the blob of potatoes, where I've hidden it. Good magic trick, huh?"
