«Fantastic track… Piano/synth work is laced throughout the track, brought into highlight those areas where it has found light to feed on between Jewett’s perfect Beck meets Mark Lanegan-like vocals… Hitting the 10/10 mark for this debut single is a promising sign… What an incredibly talented artist»Big Takeover Magazine

«Pink Grout is an off kilter Strokes meets Under My Thumb melody – it’s a dark tale of city life»Strange Brew

«Even from the first play you know that this is the start of a long and lasting friendship. Dust Contest is part Monkees, part Flaming Lips, if you can imagine such a thing, by contrast Late Bloom is a wistful and melancholic piece in the vein of Elliot Smith» – Dancing About Architecture

«Ranging in tempo and even stylistically, but doing so wonderfully with every step, Evan’s debut solo offering is a winner. Eclectic yet grounded, truly American yet loaded with boundless possibility, the silver glean of the music from this largely under-the-radar artist cannot help but shine through» – Louder Than War

NYC-based singer-songwriter Evan Jewett presents his debut long-play. Released by Aagoo Records, ‘Don’t Feel To Work’ is available in various formats, including digital and vinyl. Ahead of that release, Jewett previewed the single ‘Pink Grout’.

«The best songs came together with little to no effort. I have little recollection of working on them. The bad ones take forever,» says Evan Jewett.

Evan Jewett is a songwriter and furniture maker living in New York City. His first album under his own name, ‘Don’t Feel to Work’ was recorded piecemeal during stays in various apartments. The record is a stoic patchwork of songs about bloody roommates, detached people stuck inside, and kids wandering the hills.

Growing up in California, Jewett picked up songwriting shortly after convincing his mother to let him drop out of school at age 17. Touring and releasing albums with various bands began immediately after. ‘Don’t Feel to Work’ is the first solo work he has produced since moving to New York City in 2012.

Evan Jewett’s songs never fall into the incidental traps that songwriters often knowingly or unknowingly fall into. Instead, he intentionally takes a more deliberate route that can look familiar but feels very different. This choice has less to do with aesthetic or image, and more to do with the exploration of his own character through song.

He uses a colorful palate to wistfully hypnotize the listener, providing a very stark and honest interpretation of one working class figure trying to carve out some sort of existence inside of a noisy time, a noisy city, and a noisy culture.

This album was recorded by Evan Jewett and Robert Cheek (Band of Horses, Tera Melos), mixed by Robby Moncrieff (Youth Lagoon, Dirty Projectors), and mastered by John Blatchford and Cory Hanson (WAND).

Aagoo Records is home to vinyl releases by Xiu Xiu, Phillip Petit, Eraldo Bernocchi & Chihei Hatakeyama, Lucky Dragons, Philippe Petit, CUP, connect_icut, and The Use. Darto’s Nicholas Merz also recently released his solo debut album ‘The Limits of Men’ through Aagoo.

‘Don’t Feel To Work’ is available via the main online stores and streaming platforms. It is also available in physical format from Aagoo Records’ website and digitally via Bandcamp.
