Jerk cooks up a jazz/hip-hop storm in third EP Green.
Joshua Kinney, otherwise known as Jerk, has just dropped his third project. It’s been almost a year since his last release, but it’s more than worth the wait. And of all the tracks, we’ve chosen ‘Drip’ as our track of the week.
It’s a track of two halves. It begins with a gentle intro before breaking into a breezy melody, brimming with flurries of muted trumpet and flute.
The new release is the most refined work of the New Yorker to date. In his own words, “I wrote a lot of music this time last year, I formed it into something living with an amazing band, we went in to the studio and recorded five songs in three hours, and I’m just ready.”
