Jason Bajada


Disc review

If Loveshit is a breakup album, it’s an unconventional one. Sure, there’s a lot emoting in its lyrics, which document Bajada’s last relationship, but warm instrumentation and upbeat percussion turn the overall mood towards the sun. Perhaps that’s why it’s hard to digest Loveshit – it’s a "sad bastard" album that isn’t sad. Bajada’s songwriting has probably never been better, and the music his words rest atop is subtle and quite effective, if a touch basic and bland at times. As a single, Ten Days in Miami is catchy, but Home’s Still in Your Bones, featuring Kim Neundorf, may be the best song here.
