Jake Bugg, Honeyhoney

JEFF ROSENBERG
9 pm, Saturday September 28 | $15.
Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Nineteen-year-old Brit folkie Jake Bugg seems to be aiming for a vintage-Dylan sound on his self-titled debut, but just ends up evoking other Dylan emulators. His softer songs are closer to Donovan, and the production is more reminiscent of an early Simon & Garfunkel album. Not that these are necessarily bad things. The vocals on the upbeat numbers reflect a more contemporary influence: The sharp, adenoidal tone recalls Liam Gallagher, though with volume and sneer dialed back a bit. He's got a ways to go, but it's possible Bugg can build on these roots and develop into a unique and substantive artist. After all, Dylan didn't release his first truly great album until he was a wizened 22 years old.
