Max Jury All I Want Marathon Artists 7”

An unsigned 21 year old artist from Des Moines, Iowa, Max Jury seems older than his biological years, tapping into a rich seam of Americana (including Gram Parsons and the Byrds, though he’s recently covered Lana Del Rey’s ‘West Coast’ too). 'All I Want’ is an elegiac, piano-led country ballad that doesn't put a foot wrong but it’s the AA-side that is the instant classic. ‘Black Metal’ is a twisted love song to a metalhead – “she don’t listen to rock’n’roll/ she don’t listen to jazz and soul” – that installs itself into your head with its melancholic tones and infectious chorus before making you want to punch the air when it speeds up towards the end. A new star in the Americana landscape, just waiting to be discovered.
