Mystery Jets - On My Feet
Hooray!!! an up and coming band that shows lots of promise and does not sound remotely like The Strokes, Bloc Party, or more refreshingly, The Libertines.
Images of The Beatles sitting with their Guru in the experimental 60s come to mind as the Eel Pie Island residents create psychedelic landscapes with their richly layered majestic carpet ride of a swirling 4 minute ever-changing epic, On My Feet.
B-Sides are just as strange and delectably different acoustic wonderlands. Drowin’ Not Wavin’ takes from the multifaceted On My Feet, and The Tale slows the pace right down.
With such long experimental but powerful tunes being written by the unique Mystery Jets, late night radio play must be their aim. On My Feet must be listened to with open ears and open minds, and most probably, with hookah embers burning too.
