Jump Into The Gospel are poised to step up to the next level. When we saw them back in June their melodic pop showed significant potential, but the Jump Into The Gospel breakout gig took place a couple of weeks back when they impressed those who came to see them open for Cloud Nothings at The Studio at Webster Hall. Last week at Pianos, I saw them again and the development of the band was striking. Lead singer Louis Epstein has mastered his stage manner and the band, which includes members of Holy Ghost and The Drums, is tighter and more focused. The thirty minute set included several numbers from the upcoming Gospel EP, due in March. At times, the music resembles the frenetic pop of Of Montreal and at others there is a definite neo-80’s sound more fitting a Captured Tracks band. The question is which type of pop band that Jump Into The Gospel is destined to be. Either way, it won’t be long before Jump Into The Gospel has moved on from smaller venues into a larger spotlight.
I recorded this set with a board feed mixed with the Neumann microphones centered in front of the soundboard booth, and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
