Tracklist: Jordan Bolton - Control

Here's something that arrived in the STN inbox with little side and flair, almost apologetically wanting coverage, which of course is where the better surprises spring from. Bolton is an 18 year old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist from Manchester claiming influence from Beck, TV On The Radio and Saul Williams. This is one of those tracks where the influence is naggingly familiar (and college American) - a little Modest Mouse or Sunset Rubdown, maybe - but not so much that it overshadows the bass-driven, organ soloing propulsion and self-questing lyrics. Keep a eye out.
