iTunes Review

While the U.K. pushed homeboy Jake Bugg to the top of its charts in 2012, in the U.S. a few fans of Bugg’s vintage-flavored, Dylan-meets-skiffle rock ’n’ roll took the young Jake to their collective bosom, impressed with his playing skills and passion. Bugg’s Dylanesque tones both hurt and helped him. For Album No. 2, American producer Rick Rubin took the singer/songwriter under his wing (or, to be exact, to his Shangri La studio in Malibu) and showed the kid how to fatten his sound up with guitars that plug in and rave up: combining his vintage aesthetic with more contemporary wrappings. Bugg also collaborates again with Snow Patrol’s Iain Archer and sophisticated pop auteur Brendan Benson. Shangri La feels more grown up and more rounded; where Bugg’s first album had some truly killer songs, Shangri La offers a few just as strong. There's the pugnacious fit “Slumville Sunrise,” the punky “What Doesn’t Kill You,” the summery lament “Me and You,” and the catchy and radio-friendly “Messed Up Kids.” A handful of tracks demand more time to plumb their depths, like the roadhouse rager “Kingpin” and the brokenhearted “Pine Trees.”

A Masterpiece

Jake's first album was amazing and sure enough this album turned out to be even better, truly a great listen!

No one like Jake Bugg

I knew about him just when he was starting and I can say he's got a really loooong way to go. Went to his gig and I can say he is a very very veeeery talented young man. Very proud of him.


He's basically a mish-mosh of every single good musician that's existed in the last 50 years- Dylan, Townshend and Weller. But, at the same time, he's completely himself and has his own style. His music is unparalleled by any so-called musician today and he is a wonderful performer. I saw him in September and I'm looking forward to seeing him again in January. Keep up the good work, Bugg. Your auspicious future is out there for you to nab.


Born: February 28, 1994 in Nottingham, England

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...
