Spotlight: Jaill

At first glance, the story of Jaill plays out like a wonderfully campy indie movie. You can practically see it in your mind – a small-town Midwestern band records some really decent demos in a bedroom, they gig around the local scene, and eventually get picked up by a world renowned label. You know, the usual.

Members Vincent Kircher and Austin Dutmer had met while studying at separate colleges in Milwaukee. Their friend Michael Corcoran joined them to perform as The Detectives; they eventually dropped this moniker with their decision to take their music and recording more seriously. They became Jail. After releasing a few albums and EPs, and adding and subtracting a few members, Jail eventually signed to Sub-Pop in 2008. There they added an extra ‘l’ to the end of their name as to avoid confusion with the European band that donned the name nearly forty years prior.

 

 

It’s this cheeky and fresh attitude that comes across in Jaill’s imperfectly smart guitar rock. Clever hooks and catchy lyrics characterize their particular brand of power-pop songs that won’t leave your head for days.

Having made the switch to Fullerton, California’s Burger Records, Jaill is set to release their upcoming album Brain Cream on June 30th. Listen to their lead single “Got an F” for a taste of the lo-fi pop goodness sure to be on display at Shea Stadium on July 15.
