about

As a veteran of the N.C. scene, John Harrison has helmed the lush and loud rock outfit North Elementary while helping hold the reins of Potluck Foundation, a far reaching collective of musicians who consistently turn out quality releases from a myriad of artists. On top of all that, Jphono1 has been a solo outlet for John for nearly half a decade. Starting with his debut record “Living is Easy” and continuing on through a string of singles, EP’s, and the outstanding album, “Know Your Clouds”, Jphono1 has been a vehicle for John to explore the quieter side of his sonic life.

While earlier Jphono1 records were a way for John to stretch his multi-instrumentalist muscles by crafting atmospheric acoustic-tinged songs, the most recent electrified release, “Time in the Chevron”, is a marked departure from what came before. The most notable difference is the appearance of a full band. This is the mark of a seasoned musician; knowing you could do something alone, but bringing in others because you believe they will make it better. Enter John W Jaquiss (Sunnyslope(s), Shit Horse) and Patrick O’Neill (Some Army, The Wyrms, Lacy Jags). Both men are accomplished multi-instrumentalists in their own rights, and they hold down the rhythm section of drums and bass, respectively.

Jphono1 songs have often worn the mark of alternate tunings that travel through open string drones like visitors passing briefly by unknown towns. The songs that round out “Time in the Chevron”, however, don’t pass through so much as they thoroughly explore. With trusty friends by his side, John illuminates and elucidates with succinct riffs and rhythms that lend a krauty component to an otherwise wholly American vibe. These tracks take their time living in the groove. Unconventional song structures unravel to reveal verses ruminating on subjects as deep and vast as cosmic and geologic impermanence, or as domestic and down to earth as an afternoon at home. Despite the wide ranging subject matter, this is perhaps the most cohesive record of the Jphono1 catalog. Sonic themes recur and twist throughout each composition. It’s clear that, while the destination is part of the parcel, it’s the discovery that Jphono1 is down with.

about

jphono1 Carrboro, North Carolina

Jphono1 and friends explore new elements in sounds and arrangements with his fuzz-frayed folk-pop. Fragments of electronics, acoustic guitars, and keys join what at first resemble straight-forward compositions, only to break apart into unassuming lo-fi with casual psychedelia, finding a comfortable station at the intersection of Meat Puppets whimsy and Steve Gunn introspection. ... more

Track Name: Codes
we never tried to crack your codes
we just let everything flow
its much brighter now
we’re much brighter now
Track Name: Feedback Is Strange
slipping thru the light on your floor
what i feel i cant say
spells from ghosts ghosts from graves they’re here now you are a wheel
and a flood and its easier that way

whatever you are
into rearrange
they’re gonna come right back to you

all of the talk
the feedback is strange
there is a half life that remains a gift for you
Track Name: House Built On Mercury
in a darkness you are chasing
put it down now you are done
you will lose yourself in a moment and justify someone

in that house built from mercury
where the roots bend to the core
Its the last time that you felt it do you feel it anymore
Track Name: The Dog That's Listening
i could do this for a while
it always makes me smile
but i feel like something else
is coming on

all this talk is cheap
in fact it is free
i'll sit here for a while
with the dog thats listening
Track Name: Castles
million castles on the shore
for a day sometimes more
they all wash away
starlight
sunshine
and you have a day
Track Name: Down With Discovery
in my mind I am down with discovery
permeate your space be the good and be gone

in the ether killing time in the chevron
rearrange your mind you might find we are one
Track Name: Upside Down
and we turned it upside down
and gave it all away
