It doesn´t happen too often these days that you get to hear albums sounding like Jarel Portman´s debut "Supersonic". We´re talking a blend of new wave, art rock and 70´s FM rock where the album sounds like it´s a lost recording from 1982.
Imagine Todd Rundgren meets Moon Martin with a touch of Sad Café and you´ll get "Supersonic", I think it´s a charming album even it´s a bit uneven.
I wouldn´t be too surprised if Jarel said his biggest musical inspiration is Warren Zevon or why not David Byrne. Then it all makes sense why he´s written songs like "Runaway blues", "Supersonic" and "Over and over".
I like this, yes I do.
