Jen Buxton - Don’t Change Your Plans TEST PRESS. I’m assuming this is out of 5, but unlike other Poison City Records test presses it doesn’t say so on the label.
If you haven’t heard of Jen, she is an amazingly talented woman with her guitar, vocals and lyrics. Her debut LP, Don’t Change Your Plans, gets played at least once a day by me. It is seriously one of the best records I have ever heard, and I’m not just saying that because she’s a mate.
The 1st press is now out of stock (I’m really keen for one so hit me up if you are wanting to sell a copy!), but there are talks of a 2nd press sometime this year. Hopefully a follow up LP will be out soon too.
Jen is playing on every date of the Hits and Pits Festival (Australia), and if you’re going you should definitely get out early to see her live. I daresay it sounds even better than her recording. She is also doing a lot of random gigs in Newcastle (her hometown) whilst also playing Stay Gold club in a couple of weeks, which I hope to see you all at!
tl;dr? Jen Buxton knows how to play guitar and sing highly personal and relatable lyrics. She and mate Wil Wagner know what’s up. If you like punk, acoustic, folk, country, or anything really, you should check her out for sure. And please don’t let any of those genres be a deterrent.
I don’t really know what to say - just fucking listen to the record here.
I’ll do a proper LP review when I’m not so bogged down with uni work :)
