Editors’ Notes

The Milwaukee power pop band Jaill chases a '60s-influenced, '70-informed style of rock 'n' roll. When the melody hits the spot, all feels right with the world. The trebly and slashing surf guitars, simple unencumbered arrangements, and gleeful harmonies add up to simple pleasures that demand the sound be turned up. Picking the album highlight is a game of Top This, as each tune uncovers a twist that makes it the current favorite. "Waste a Lot of Things" kicks off in high spirits. "Horrible Things (Make Pretty Songs)" displays the band's hummable sad side, as wisps of The Beach Boys trail through the air. "Madness" floats with acoustic guitar and a keyboard introducing the song's scrappy appeal. "Ten Teardrops" centers on a melody that quickly bursts with joy. "Everyone's a Bitch" cranks up the power chords for a new wave–styled punch. "Lazy River" is too good to be just a bonus track, but so it is. Recorded in a basement studio, Traps has the sparkling feel of a band that records whenever the inspiration hits and the time is right.

The songwriting on this album is good, as well as the musicianship, but the production really lets the groups hallmark, their unique harmonious voices down.


Pure genius. Such an amazing band, Subpop never disappoints! Indie music is my all time favorite!

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A jangly guitar pop group with eight years already under their belt, Milwaukee's Jail got their big break when they signed a two-album deal with Sub Pop in November of 2009. With the new, more prominent label came a name change to Jaill (note the extra L) when it was discovered that another band shared their name. The sequel to their breakout success, There's No Sky (Oh My My) was planned for the following year. That's How We Burn, their first album recorded with outside help, was recorded in Milwaukee's...
