Dosh | Capture the flag – live at home
Jeff T. Smith aka Juffage is a solo sound artist and multi-instrumentalist from Leeds, via Chicago, Illinois. A recording enthusiast at heart, he has spent time in some of Chicago’s finest studios including Engine Studios (w/ Brian Deck), and Electrical Audio (w/ Steve Albini). Live shows see him coming up with inventive new ways of bringing his multi-layered recordings to the stage. Through the use of cassettes, drums, guitars, basses, and assorted other loop-pedals and gadgets, Juffage creates complex, yet surprising catchy pop songs.
Juffage performances have been compared to a synthesis of Lightning Bolt’s rhythmic ferocity, Radiohead’s lush pop sensibility, King Tubby’s manipulative production, and Andrew Bird’s ability to make a good loop. The result has been described as a “hyperactive and technically accomplished display”, “magical”, and “wildly exuberant yet deceptively delicate”.
