For the last 5 years, living in a car, booking his own shows, producing all his own music, Paleo has become something of a mantlepiece in the American house show circuit. His tour history is a database for kindred spirits: over 700 shows across the US, about 150 a year since 2005. A View Of The Sky is his third effort. The songs contained therein, vivid scrawls of a remarkable mind, are the first compositions he made following his marathon year; it is also Paleo’s first collaboration with Partisan Records out of Brooklyn, NY– home to Deer Tick, JBM, Mountain Man, and more.

Jesse Marchant, who records under his initials, JBM, was born and raised in his family’s homes in the Adirondacks and Montreal. Classically trained on guitar from the age of 7, he had always written instrumental songs as a means of expression, but it wasn’t until recent years that he began writing lyrics, singing and recording. After a decision to withdraw, he retreated to his family’s home in the mountains, to live in seclusion and fully realize songs that he’d written while living in Los Angeles, in what he’s described as a somewhat strange and solitary three-year existence.

Not Even In July is a mostly acoustic venture, textured thoughtfully by Marchant’s atmospheric arrangements, lyrical purity and unaffected baritone –that is as grand in its haunting restraint as it is in its emotional vitality. “Years,” a lulling, finger-picked instrumental slips into “Cleo’s Song,” a ghostly reverie on loneliness and despair, while “Ambitions & War” targets Los Angeles, in a shuffling indictment of greed and inhumanity. “July on the Sound” crashes delicately and darkly through scenes of death, love and life; “From Me to You and You to Me” weaves a lazy, spiraling plea; and the resolute beat of “Friends For Fireworks” swings from the optimism and beauty of sunset to the dark finality of night. The album closes with “Red October” and its piano-drenched memories of a love lost, and “Swallowing Daggers”, a hopeless declaration of concern for a loved one gone off the rails.

We love Jesse Merchant

Jesse Marchant (JBM) was lauded by iTunes as a top singer/songwriter of 2009. Only recently immersing himself back into music writing lyrics, singing and recording, JBM has the lush and haunting vocals that are reminiscent of his musical peers – Jim James or Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). Marchant’s debut album not even in July (April 13th, Partisan Records) was made in just two weeks, but it embodies a meticulous and carefully crafted sound that could take a lifetime to achieve. not even in July is a collection of ten heartfelt compositions that billow, ripple and glide by softly with measured persistence and spectral beauty. Fresh on the heels of a nationwide tour with Sondre Lerche, JBM is on the road with Rogue Wave right now. Listen to Ambitions & War – not even in July
