Listen to the fuzzy delirium of Jackson Scott’s new single, “Together Forever”

Jackson Scott

North Carolina’s Jackson Scott only has a few loose songs to his name, but each one demonstrates his growing grasp of solid guitar pop. His latest track, “Together Forever”, starts off like many a Built To Spill standout has — a bending, feedback-drenched guitar melody whips around like a thick slab of hot rubber — before launching into full-blown fuzz-pop (or as he calls it, “apocalypse pop”). The drawn-out verses and choruses then go on to chug along in some kind of half-asleep, half-delirious happy blur before the song eventually bursts and closes out in a tangle of noise.

“Together Forever” will appear on Jackson Scott’s debut album, Melbourne, due out July 23rd via Fat Possum.
