    John Keek - "By Your Side"

    It might take a minute or two for John Keek's experimental jazz stylings to sink in—he doesn't give you big hooks or repetitive melodies that popular music demands. Instead, Keek has woven an unmistakable sonic quilt over his last two tracks. His voice, saxophone, and slippery time signatures are making waves in the music world (King Krule has taken notice), and with an EP in the works, the best is yet to come.—Graham Corrigan
