I’m fairly certain that Glenn Davis was the first Columbus musician I ever introduced myself to as a part of The Wounded Jukebox. It came after Davis and his buddies that comprise the up-and-coming band Way Yes performed in an opening slot for a show that included previous Inside The Jukebox featurees Jookabox. Way Yes’ brand of Afro-Caribbean infused quirkpop caught my ear and won me over in little more than 30 minutes, and so I figured I’d shake his hand. One couldn’t ask for a nicer dude, and it’s been good to see a Columbus-bred band generate a little buzz over the past year or so.
Davis stumbled upon a video of Indianapolis-based band Slothpop not too long ago, and was enamored enough to pick up the phone and put together a few dates with the Hoosier-state fivesome. He and his boys also took the excellent Slothpop track “Magenta” and remixed it quite nicely. You can grab the entire Slothpop album for just $10 on their Bandcamp page. Grab both “Magenta” and the excellent Way Yes remix for free, and please check out one of the shows (dates below).
