Jonesiii From the Moon – The Moon is Watching Us

I know very little about Jonesiii From the Moon, aka Dedrick Jones, but the four tracks he’s posted on Bandcamp as a preview for his forthcoming album, The Moon is Watching Us (due Sept 10th),  is a compelling argument for learning more. The overall tone is laid back but he’s managed to mix mysterious spacey vibes both into the music (see the three minute outro on “Black Moon” or the staggering vocal track on “Afraid”) and into the lyrics – a thematic element that runs throughout the preview tracks. 

The full album will be 17 tracks that likely maintains a similar vibe. That won’t be easy to pull off but I imagine there’s plenty of compelling tricks up his sleeve to keep it interesting.
