From the opening bars of their debut LP, you can tell AJ & The Jiggawatts came to play rough. In a world where mid tempo and middle of the road soul permeates the airwaves, this crew of G.E.D soul killers are drawing a line in the stand by making soul music that hits harder, faster, and nastier than just about anyone in the game today.
AJ & The Jiggawatts self titled full length debut eloquently captures the vibe of a high energy, no nonsense band, the entire album plays out like a wild night on the town with the band, and there is a good chance you're going to jail before the night's over. Tracks like Back Alley Beale Street and Brown Bottle Fever transport the listener to the many bourbon drenched juke joints of Memphis while tracks like Throw A Fit literally explode with frenetic energy. Get Wild, The Drop, and Shake It For Me bring the raucous party element to the record and Once In A Lifetime and Typical Feeling get things nice and tender. In terms of attitude and straight up bad-assery, this is one of the hypest albums you are going to hear in 2014.
