JUBA exploded onto my radar with their adrenaline rush of rock “Bloodvessels” earlier this year and they’ve followed up on the promise of that introduction with their fantastic full-length Mynah. “Please Oh Please”, a favorite of mine from my first listen through, expands upon the psychedelic surf-punk of “Bloodvessels” and validates all the hopes I had for the band. The track swells with a huge wordless chorus that hovers above the constantly evolving guitar, drum and bass seascape beneath. Mynah manages to occupy a sweet spot in the jangle-pop landscape somewhere between the ocean-mindedness of DIIV and the psych freak outs of Thee Oh Sees (“Sow Your Wild Oats”) without ever losing a unique sense of identity. Lisbon is more than just where Panda Bear lives I guess.
