Redjetson are a six-piece spread over the less glamorous parts of London and the near beyond (Southend). The adventure preceding the release of their album has seen Redjetson release a debut split 12” single with Oxford sorcerers Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies (‘This City Moans’ and ‘Divorce’ b/w ‘…Spooks The Horse’ [YMSS]), alongside a co-headlining tour with the same group, as well as a spate of recently-wowing London shows which have generated the sort of praise that would make even a professional egoist blush. Add to that the curation of their own ‘Do Or Die’ and ‘Soldier Boy’ club nights in East London, and it’s already been an eye-opening experience.
Redjetson deal with epic songs full of slow-burning grandeur, emotional intensity and imposing passion. Despite their glacial exterior, their tunes are infused with a deep warmth and beating heart, moving away from the constrictive forms of ‘post rock’, and into warmer, more soulful climbs.
“…set to break all perceptions of post-rock being inaccessible and only suited to homicidal sociopaths… If you like your Joy Division, Six by Seven, Mogwai and Radiohead then this is essential!” – This is fake diy.
‘New General Catalogue’, named after the book that maps the stars, is their debut album.
“New General Catalogue” is the debut full-lenght of the UK post-rock band Redjetson.
This album is truly one of those where you have to listen to it several times before you ‘get it’. If you prefer frothy pop, it’s not for you. If, on the other hand, you like your music to give you something new to discover every time you listen to it, it’s worth giving it a go.
“Breathtakingly beautiful…Find out why loud is the new loud. Brilliant.”
“a righteous thrilling, trilling minor chord epic.(…) Blissful”
“Redjetson are one of my favourite bands at the moment. Dramatic, intense and exciting…”
