Reviews are coming in for Jean Caffeine’s fourth full length release Geckos In The Elevator! Check out some of the kind words about the album below:
From the Austin Chronicle :
“With opener “Lucky Penny,” Jean Caffeine slides into a groove so familiar that Geckos in the Elevator tricks you into thinking this veteran rocker spent the last decade honing these 11 celebratory, confessional, autobiographical, and gorgeously patterned songs here in Austin instead of Durham, N.C.”
From Blurt :
Geckos follows the troubadour’s usual folk/country/rock template fairly closely – there’s nothing here the average No Depression fan wouldn’t clasp tightly to his/her breast. But the LP isn’t a series of clichés, either, given Caffeine’s very personal outlook on the world. Her smarts, sensitivity and, most of all, conversational style elevate the political commentary of “Devil I Know,” the storytelling waltz of “Sadie Saturday Night” and the hometown salute “Hey Austin” far above formula.
From PopMatters :
“Caffeine’s vocal idiosyncrasies at times create a sense of listlessness and her preference for simple Reed and Smith-like arrangements offers more of the same. When it works, almost inexplicably, on tracks such as “Hey Austin” and “Mary O’ Shea” and punk rock memoir “Sadie Saturday Night” the results are undeniably memorable and winning.”
