Jon Boy writes the kinds of songs that are perfect for long drives with lots to wince about. The pain of getting your heart stomped, the righteous rush of vindicated anger, the unexpected relief of hope renewed—these emotions permeate this debut EP. On it, multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Mercer mines some of the same classic rock terrain as fellow rock scholar/hooksmith Robert Pollard. More than trace amounts of The Replacements can be found here as well, but Mercer adds his own brand of cosmericana to the recipe and creates his own potent mixture. Simply put, Jon Boy makes catharsis hurt so good, and as a result, so will you...
