Sandwich Club.FM His weightless sound reminded me of fellow well-dwelling contemporaries, Zach Rogue and Damien Jurado. Incorporating a gritty lo-fi 60s sound, his songs would have also slotted in nicely somewhere on The Forest Gump Soundtrack, maybe for that classic shot of Jenny out the bus window...
[AR] Is This Music Magazine If you like the concept of the modern singer-songwriters but are finding them all too clean and polished to be believable, then Streaky Jake may be right up your street. The entire record seems to be covered in a layer of murky grime that slightly mutes and muffles the tracks but doesn't hide the finger-picking styles or the grizzled vocal delivery. ... vocals reminiscent of The Soledad Brothers, whereas other tracks will be lapped up by fans of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.
Alternative Ulster.com The debut album from Streaky Jake aka Australian singer-songwriter Sean Gorman, is a self-recorded set of ultra-low-fi folk tunes. Loosely based around the journey through a relationship, the record’s basic production lends a gritty charm to the delicate finger-picking, occasional mouth-organ and simplistic percussion, while Gorman’s evocative voice draws humour, insight and pathos in spades from his quiet meditations on love, sin, death and regret. Close in both sound and spirit to Devendra Banhart, but minus the bouts of unnecessary wackiness.
