Editors’ Notes

Before the debut LP from British folk-rock sensation Jake Bugg was even released in the U.S., discerning ears (and nascent fans) may have noticed his music in a Gatorade commercial. The driving, rebellious, Dylan-in-his-youth tune "Lightning Bolt" may at first seem like an odd choice for a soundtrack to 60 seconds of Gatorade history, but it works. The song's fiery guitar and racing melody electrify like, well, a lightning bolt. Bugg topped the British charts in 2012, at the tender age of 18. This young musician sounds like an old soul, with influences from Johnny Cash to The Everly Brothers and Donovan coloring his work; he's been known to cover Jimi Hendrix (his guitar work is astonishing for someone who only started playing at 12). This long-awaited debut is solid from start to end. Among the record's many delights are ballads imbued with pop references from the Merseybeat sound to Oasis ("Note to Self," "Slide"), barn-burners, quiet fingerpicked gems à la early Dylan ("Someone Told Me," "Trouble Town"), and swaggering country-pop ("Two Fingers"). He even pays homage to blues icon Robert Johnson on the closing track, "Fire." Smart boy.

Customer Reviews

Awesome

Just waiting for him to blow up in the States!!!

Absolutely perfect

This album is completely perfect with great lyrics and terrific guitar playing. His voice really stands out and bring uniqueness to each song. I can tell that he is going to go far.

New 'Invasion'

Sort of a cross between early Dylan, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon and Willie Nelson (If You Can Imagine!?!). Fresh Modern 'Retro,' … Heck … It's just Good Music! Haven't heard anything this NOW since Bosco Delrey.
A New Invasion from Yet Another Teenage Brit! Hope he'll choose to 'age' with us.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Raised on a steady diet of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and the brothers Gallagher, English singer/songwriter Jake Bugg blends the melodious, working-class swagger of the La's and the primal, bluesy simplicity of the White Stripes with the wry, weathered romanticism of Jens Lekman. Born in Nottingham, Bugg picked up the guitar at the age of 12, and within a year he was composing his own songs. Disinterested in the hip-hop and grime that dominated the listening habits of his peers, he turned...
