We’re following up yesterday’s song premiere of “The End” with a full album premiere of Slow Your Roll by Jake & The Good Men.  It’s the debut full-length from the Philadelphia band, started by Drexel student Jake Goodman as a way to bring his catalog of rocking pop songs to live audiences.

Goodman, joined by his “jam family” of Dylan Edwards, Jeremy Levick, Stefan Richter and Gabe Nathans, manages to line-up a variety of styles and influences on Slow Your Roll in a way that treats each track as a surprise around the corner.  The Good Men move seamlessly from pop-driven numbers like “Stick to the Groove” and the bright Beatles-esque “Today” to rootsy tracks like the lumbering Wilco-inspired “The Spark.”  Stream the full record below and visit Jake & The Good Men’s Bandcamp tomorrow, December 19th, for the official release.

Today we are happy to premiere a new song from local outfit Jake & The Good Men.  “The End” is the final track from Slow Your Roll, the band’s debut LP that will be released on December 19th.   It’s an apology song, the one that comes after the break-up dust has settled and emotions and actions are more in perspective.  Frontman Jake Goodman’s vocals are incredibly striking against the stark backdrop of an acoustic guitar, matching the confessional nature of the lyrics as the instrumentation slowly builds with the introduction of a subtle bass line and electric guitar. Stream “The End” below and stay tuned for more from Jake & The Good Men.
