Label: Independent Released: 6/1/2000


Jeremy Gloff, now hailing from Tampa Bay, Florida, has a prolific output numbering some 153 songs on 11 albums. His latest release, Spin Girl Spin, opens with a slightly atonal guitar strumming that tells you right away that this is no standard pop fare. As the song Deadchina progresses, Gloff's distinctive vocals chime in with clear female harmonies to sweeten the mix. Gloff's personal lyrics run the gamut of subjects from love and desire to violence to amusing poetic nonsensical stream-of-consciousness, delivered in a voice vaguely familiar yet unique, reminiscent of Matt Johnson (The The) and occasionally of acts such as The Watchmen or The Sweater Girls, with chord progressions and understated production not unlike bands such as Eric's Trip and Jale. At times the album sounds like a good eighties band (remember Pukka Orchestra? Wall of Voodoo?) that surfaced 15 years too late. Gloff's melodic and rhythmic sense carries the album and makes it unique. This is not the type of album that smacks you in the face with pop-catchiness but rather a drum-and-guitar folk-pop album that grows on you and endears itself to you over several listens. I always prefer the latter as I believe an album is likely to stay in your stereo longer if it has to earn your respect. Unfortunately many people do not have the attention span to give an album like this the attention it deserves but those who do will not go unrewarded.
