joshua jesty is refreshingly unpretentious and even self-depreciating, but in a humorous way, not as a means to fish for compliments. The Cleveland, Ohio musician has been recording in bands since 1998 and now gives us - literally if you opt for zero as the name-your-price option - his new EP 'wasn't the world supposed to end?' We'd suggest that this EP is well worth a couple of quid of anyone's money, and that's just for the gorgeous alt-rock of 'I can't wait to see your light'. Oh, and by the way, we're not being incompetent, it appears joshua jesty isn't a fan of capital letters. He talks of musical clutter; there's a heap of it, and its everywhere. It clogs up the inboxes of music blogs, labels, magazines, PR companies and more, and we know this all too well. joshua doesn't want to be a part of the clutter, but he's worried that he might be anyway. Well, that anthemic opener elevates him far above most of the junk we receive, so he can rest easy on that one.
I for one am glad the world did not end.
