The South African trio Just Jinjer are one of the biggest rock band exports in South African history, having sold more than 250,000 albums. The band has toured with U2, Counting Crows and Def Leppard. Their debut "All comes around" was released in 1997 and 4 more albums came out before this self titled release in 2006, which is almost the same as the international version on Curb Records in 2010. The song "Seasons" is only featured here while the 2010 version contains 3 new tracks, this is a laid back modern rock album with soulful vocals from Ard Matthews. My thoughts go to the late 90´s modern rock with a touch of Christian rock a la Delirious?. And speaking of their frontman Ard Matthews, his solo debut "First offerings" was released on July 6th this year so head on over to their website and learn more.
You can call this comfy rock.
