  1. Greetings Rev. Keith from the first band to take residence inside the actual internet (88 Doyle st., Google County, Internet). We love following your reviews on and feel honored to approach you. I’m approaching as our band Joe and the Jungle (Dash Ryder Records) has released our debut album “Broken Amps and Fuzz Boxes”, a powerful tale of love, war, and tragedy, told through the union of thundering stadium rock songs and beautifully haunting ballads. And the best part we feel is that it was completely mastered ANALOG, all analog warmth and no digital to preserve the sound. We would feel honored if we could be considered for a review from you sir.

    While making frequent returns to “real life” (LA residence in the “real” world) with our Personal Portal Teleporting Device (PPTD), Joe and the Jungle has been playing sold out shows at the clubs on the sunset strip and around LA the past year, and now with the release of the debut album “Broken Amps and Fuzz Boxes”, we are preparing for a national tour this spring in support of the band and album. Broken Amps and Fuzz Boxes is a completely self funded and self produced rock album 2 and a half years in the making. Each song, though crafted on their own and individually tell a story, were arranged and chosen to work together to tell a larger tale (album notes attached)

    Additionally each song holds a unique key to the band’s past and storied history as well as no single track was recorded with all of the same band members OR all in the same studio/country/city. The album spans 2 continents, 3 countries, 6 cities, 5 recording studios, and 7 musicians and the song styles range from a Foo Fighter’s-esque heavy post grunge sound, to a softer haunting melodic Beatles and David Bowie style, providing a clashing dynamic which works together to create a story of lost love and war.

    Although a zipped complete press copy of the album and notes listed here is available for you to download at the end of this email, listed below is also a link to the full streaming album online, in case you want to hear it first and download later, as well as a direct mp3 link to our first single off the album, “Special Place”.
