Team Grizzly presents Jason Choi, of Melbourne, Florida, an singer/songwriter who captures all of the critical indie elements on his new record, â€œLeave The Night Behind.â€ Just about every song invites comparisons. â€œMore Than Many Sparrowsâ€ has the soaring of Death Cab For Cutie. On â€œArenâ€™t We Funny,â€ Jason does his best Michael Stipe imitation, in a song that could have been an outtake from Automatic For The People, what with its odd juxtaposition of mourning and yearning vocals over cymbal-heavy, optimistic beat. And yet, at the same time, his music sounds distinctive. Solid indie pop with a very talented band. I particularly enjoyed â€œUp Jump The Devil,â€ available below.
