Jack Littman – Sinking Ship

I have been so obsessed with this song lately, I really massively love it. It comes from his debut mixtape (cover above), and I have had it on repeat for the last month or so. I really love his voice. He reminds me of a mix of Antony Hegarty, Diamond Rings and blues from the Deep South OR SOMETHING. I get a bit of a slight melancholy disco vibe from it also, I am amazed it hasn’t exploded through-out the music blog world already, I think its a really special track.

I know precious little about Jack Littman, he isn’t even on youtube, but I don’t think it will be all that long until the world starts to pick up on him a bit…he has his debut EP¬†available for free download on his bandcamp, and whilst it isn’t all ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL like “Sinking Ship” (download it right), most of it is really excellent, my second favourite is the closing track “Undercover Lover”. I think he definitely shows promise for the future. ¬†He describes his music as “electro-folk-soul”, “Sinking Ship” I don’t think is a million miles away from Patrick Wolf’s “Lycanthropy” album (which was amazing), I hope this is the direction he persues in future, instead of his more regular folky stuff found elsewhere on his EP, its the type of music that will get him noticed.

From the small amounts that I can find about Jack Littman online, it would appear the he does sport a resonably decent quiff, and is 21 years old -

Anyway, you can download “Sinking Ship” and the rest of his EP here (legally) for free, grab “Sinking Ship” for sure, and if you like that have a listen to the rest IS MY ADVICE, Got2HaveU is pretty awesome too -

  4. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your site.
    It seems like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
    to them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Cheers

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
