Jeb Loy Nichols
United States of the Broken Hearted
The new Jeb Loy Nichols album is twelve sombre but beautiful tracks, with longtime friend and producer Adrian Sherwood swapping his trademark dubwise approach for carefully stripped back arrangements. Acoustic guitar and Jeb’s voice are framed by subtle splashes of horns, cello and percussion, plus keyboard contributions from Martin Duffy (Primal Scream/Felt). Politically charged cover versions (“I Hate The Capitalist System”, “Deportees”) sit amongst more introspective material, including some of the finest songs that Nichols has written to date.
