Cotton Jones, Mission Spotlight
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[PSYCH-FOLK] To quote an iTunes customer review about Michael Nau of Cotton Jones, the band leader is “still the man who musically helps you come down from your bad trip.” Referring to the group’s 2010 album, Tall Hours in the Glowstream, that comment sums up the surreal, homecoming vibe of the Maryland-based band’s music, which mixes together washed-out guitar, psychedelic keys, worn-in male and female vocals and quirky lo-fi textures. Only releasing a handful of songs during the last couple years, including the EP Sit Beside Your Vegetables and limited edition 7-inch About the Game, the group stayed busy on the road in 2012 with its well-suited tourmates, Dr. Dog. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed for more tunes to bring us down from the bad trip of not having enough Cotton Jones.
