Editors’ Notes

Mason Jennings has a refreshingly casual style. He often sings lyrics as if he’s throwing away the punch lines. He often jams as many words as he can into a line, and then sits back and lets the music flow past. It’s an interesting approach and it’s yielded many fine albums. 2011’s Minnesota is another intriguing collection. “Wake Up” is an eerie account of an artist battling a drinking problem that uses its unusual rhythms to make a point. “Clutch” sits at the piano and brings forth a compelling tune that suddenly blossoms with orchestration. “Bitter Heart” best illustrates the advantages of Jennings’ home studio. The song is a lonesome, dour tune that benefits from its sparse intimacy. “Raindrops On the Kitchen Floor” is the closest Jennings has moved from his minimalist folk roots into Beatles-like psychedelic pop. “Hearts Stop Beating” surprises everyone with driving electric guitars and pounding drums. “Witches Dream” even includes a little rapping. “Well of Love” throws up a mambo. Jennings has plenty of new music in him.

Customer Reviews

Legit, for realsies!

Mason has done it again and I want to be the first to say the dude knows how to write music. I've been listening for the past week and I'm hooked. I like the different feel it has. This album is a lot less folk and a lot more tom waits mixed with prince and bob dylan, maybe a dash of john prine for good measure, too. Disappointed there isn't a bonus track and only nine new ones but the rate Mason puts out music you know he's due for another album in about a year. Listen to it over and over and learn from the wisdom of Mason!

Always great!

If you don't own everything Mason has ever put out you are making poor life decisions. When I first heard him I thought he was just another cheesy hippy, but he has changed my outlook on what music is and what music can be. His music gets inside you and infects every aspect of your being. Thanks Mason! Keep it up!

Mason does it again!

It doesn't get much better than this folks. One of the best singer songwriters going today. Intelligent lyrics, catchy melodies.. Fantastic album!
