Atlanta-based outfit Jacob & The Good People take a nice step forward on sophomore EP “Rotten.” It’s the first album for the Jacob Blazer-fronted band since he relocated to the Peach State and finds him mixing elements of hip-hop, electronica and indie pop into a tasty sonic stew.

Jacob CD“This disc has a faux urban/electronic vibe that the previous EP didn’t have,” Blazer says of the five-track release. “It’s a little goofy and intentional. If anyone has seen us, they understand our fascination with hip-hop and our everlasting desire to mimic it just a bit.”

There’s also a hint of Sublime woven throughout “Rotten,” with Jacob & The Good People soaring especially high on keepers “Koo Koo,” personal favorite “Alcoholic,” “I Love Women” (featuring Crane) and “Clink.” Can’t wait to hear more from Blazer & Co. (Jeffrey Sisk)
