AJJ (formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad) will release The Bible 2 on August 19th on sideonedummy.
Can anyone give me a quick rundown of their style and/or a good starting point record? I hear their name pop up a lot, but have never listened.
i like knife man, haven't been too into them though. pretty much the definition of folk punk/anti-folk, if mountain goats were edgier and the vocalist was even harder to get into/more nasally
Hot Take: I enjoy People Who Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World more than Knife Man
They're both good though.
PWCEPATLPITW will always have a soft spot in my heart but Knife Man will always be my favorite.
A solid representation of how AJJ sounds.
sounds now at least. They were very different up until that record.
I feel like this is a common opinion? People is pretty much the fan favorite.
Anyway very stoked about this.
Oh, is it? I think everyone I've ever talked about them with thought Knife Man was their magnum opus.
Weird, I think I hear Knife Man talked about the least. When people talk about their favorite it's usually either People or Can't Maintain. They're all excellent though so there's no wrong answer haha.
michael jordan of drunk driving is the best <25 second song of all time
As a starting record I think their latest, Christmas Island, is the most accessible and catchy. And probably just working backwards from there is a good way to get into them.
1. Cody's Theme
2. Golden Eagle
3. Junkie Church
4. American Garbage
5. No More Shame, No More Fear, No More Dread
6. Goodbye, Oh Goodbye
7. White Worms
8. My Brain is a Human Body
10. Small Red Boy
11. When I'm A Dead Boy
Hopefully the color in color lp is still around when I get paid in a week. Stoked I'm getting this on my birthday.
Cool, I like AJJ a lot
Sounds like it wouldn't of been too far off from Can't Maintain or Knife man. Love it.
Like half of this is streaming on bandcamp. It's all pretty good, American Garbage made me lol really hard though.
Pretty sure they're putting out a new song every day until friday. Everything's great so far.
This album is some of the best stuff they've done.
Wish this was on Apple Music now instead of in a week. Really liked my bandcamp listen though, better than Christmas Island I think which I already liked.
Why did they choose Goodbye Oh Goodbye as a single? I think it might actually be the worst on this.
fun album. definitely an improvement from christmas island.
I had no idea they had a new one. I listened to Christmas Island nonstop when it came out and I plan to do the same with this.
