Andrew Jackson Jihad released their album ‘Christmas Island’ on 5th May and, having already streamed ‘Children of God’ here, ‘Kokopelli Face Tattoo’ is also now available for your listening pleasure after premiering on Consequence of Sound who say "It’s a searing track, one of the fuzzier offerings of their oeuvre.
It still contains all the elements of a great Andrew Jackson Jihad song. For instance, like its predecessor, the song finds frontman Sean Bonnette delivering some witty lines like, “Hating you won’t make you suck any less.” Solid advice from the Phoenix-based folk-punks.”
Christmas Island, the fifth album proper from Phoenix, Arizona’s Andrew Jackson Jihad, is a little bit silly, a little bit serious and incredibly powerful —somethingAndrew Jackson Jihad have been doing for the past decade but have truly perfected on this new release. Recorded by John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Mountain Goats, Okkervil River, The Thermals) at Elmwood Studios in Dallas, TX, all twelve of Christmas Island’s songs blur the line between the ludicrous and the earnest. It’s a record that’s irreverent yet somber, full of humour and full of pathos, its twelve songs combining the two to create a record that truly cuts right to the bone of the human condition.
