Listening to Jaunt's Cue is like taking mushrooms on top of a frozen volcano with Peter Gabriel. It's a picnic, the sky is clear and blue, and Peter Gabriel is dressed as a banana. You are patiently awaiting the eruption, but you're not afraid. You like the build-up, you like the funk.
It's funky as hell, Peter Gabriel would say, dressed as a banana, taped to his costume would be a picture of Phil Collins with a line drawn through it.
I'm in it for the anticipation, Peter Gabriel would say, and Jaunt's Cue has the build-up and eruption of a picnic on a volcano.
This is a cohesive set of ethereal and spacey songs. Not too dissimilar from dreaming that it's Christmas and you're seven years old, and waking up and realizing that you're actually a twenty-five year-old man.
Your brain will feel as if it's rising out of your skull, in the best way possible. The first single, “Faster Interactions”, is an up-and-down trip through electric body-moving vibes that recuperate your brain after the day's doubtless toils and piles of shit. Jaunt is the perfect escape from the monotony of daily life, and music. Projecting a voice your speakers probably aren't even used to, because they're not prepared.
Cue is a tight-as-a-knot-tied-by-a-Catholic-boyscout EP that will take you on a serene trip down a lazy river lined with LED string lights and velvet sheets. It's a comfortable way to begin or end your day, it's like being home in the rain. Hey, thanks, Jaunt, for giving me a house.
