Jinrai – Some Place Else


Single Review by EDF

Jinrai, a ten piece folk / funk group is a bit of an unusual combination. While we have our own Jamiroquai, Jinrai produce more of the same but relies on a more acoustic folk style than on disco beats. SOMEPLACE ELSE is at best average and doesn’t show what this group is capable of but the other tracks on this single do. On URBAN PLAYGROUND, a wailing violin is the dominant sound throughout making this very enjoyable feet tapping funky track. BETTER MAN is mostly an acoustic guitar and percussion track that just grabs your attention more than a full-blown production would.
