Jay-Jay Johanson's first album, WHISKEY, is certainly a product of its time: when Portishead-style Bristol trip-hop ruled the earth. Even so, Johanson's plaintive vocals still soar above the scratches and vinyl crackles of "It Hurts Me So" or the more pared-down "The Girl I Love Is Gone." "I'm Older Now" takes a slow, semi-martial beat and backs it with some long horns before Johanson's voice beckons a more skittery rhythm to take over in the "Extended Beats" section. The bizarre country sound of "Tell Me Like It Is" defies Bristol, however, as does the sexy-making "I Fantasize of You." But the obvious standout is "So Tell the Girls That I Am Back in Town," which could almost givce the Rat Pack a run for its money. For pop-trip-hop, Johanson makes a strong, sincere effort.
