Homespun: Jailbox, One for Each of Us

Posted By on Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 2:00 PM

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Jailbox's new CD, One for Each of Us. He had this to say:

Jailbox may rep for Perryville, Missouri, but the quartet stakes a sonic claim to the melodic and sensitive British rock made popular by Coldplay, Doves and Starsailor. While Coldplay took cues from U2 and set its sights on stadium-rock, Jailbox prefers to keep things intimate while it summons an expansive palette. Guitarist and singer Andy Tanz pulls you in close with a sweet but strong tenor voice, backed ably by guitarist Joseph Bassa and brothers Cody and Samuel Schenck in the rhythm section. The strong, varied One for Each of Us works well thanks to equal parts restraint and inventiveness. Much of the first half of the disc centers on quiet songs that are pensive but never moody, evocative but not overwrought or cerebral.

Read the rest here. Jailbox is performing tomorrow night at Vintage Vinyl at 6:30 p.m. The band's official CD release show is at 9 p.m. on Friday, April 23, at the Old Rock House. Sample an MP3 below.
