#28 grampall jookabox – the girl ain’t preggers

while sufjan stevens has been on a rather long hiatus, his asthmatic kitty label has been keeping itself busy with new signings, the latest of which is grampall jookabox – songwriter david adamson’s self-proclaimed “jungle folk” project. a new album ropechain is due this november, the fruit of a spontaneously intense week of composing and arranging, featuring among other songs the stomping “the girl ain’t preggers”. a direct pounding tribal structure forms the backbone for the narrator’s ironic tale of the woes of finding his girl pregnant, and the loss he subsequently rues upon realizing it was a false alarm. delightfully candid and powerfully raw, this is a promising preview for the upcoming album, and an honest account of the laughable contradictions of the human condition.
