Jonathan Boulet – “This Song Is Called Ragged”
Jonathan Boulet must know that it’s a Thursday, because “This Song Is Called Ragged” is a much-needed splash of cold water to the face. Boulet’s approach to songwriting, song-titles and well, everything else, is refreshingly simple. On his Facebook page, he giddily describes himself as “a 23-year-old Australian” and the music as being “best listened to in group situations.”
Boulet hits the nail on the head — “Ragged” (taken from the upcoming We Keep the Beat Found the Sound See the Need Start the Heart) sounds like Snow Patrol covering Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros covering Young the Giant. (Did someone say “music festival”?) If you’re still weighing in on whether or not this is a good thing, we have two words for you: xylophone solo.
