check out there music, very interesting stuff. great lead vocals, great playing, and great songs.

Monster bass lines lurch around every smooth, molten piano roll taunting limbs to get up, get moving. Forging jazz, two-ton funk, drum n’ bass, and a maelstrom of motormouth lyrics Jackfruit has broken ties from genres and classifications that separate music by creating their own unique bricolage too mind-blowing to pigeon-hole.

After a couple of years at the drawing board and only months in practice, the Vancouver-based foursome took to Mushroom Studios to record their first and currently unreleased independent album that demands to be heard; Check Ça.

From forced screams to falsetto, the verbose Chris Berry (Slow Nerve Action/Duran Duran Duran) offers pointed commentary on politics, consumption, fashion, and roller-skating while synth-wizard Ian Lamont (Slow Nerve Action/Duran Duran Duran) speaks keyboard like his first language - alternating melodic, emotional jazz piano with quick blasts of warm screeching organ. Stéphane Fortin (Blue Quarter/Duran Duran Duran) attacks the bass delivering fireball riffs and growling funkiness as drummer Drew Vendetti (Trip) sets the pace through snappy snare shots and eruptions of stupefying swells.

I am - you thinking about it?

Thinking about it. I'm supposed to be going out with my dad for some dinner and comedy before hand... I was not planning on having a late night, but I would like to see these guys.

I'll keep you posted. More enticing if I know some friendly familiar faces will be there!
