Reviewed! Jonathan Jeter and the Revelators - Late To My Own Funeral


Jonathan Jeter and the Revelators
Late to My Own Funeral

Jonathan Jeter and the Revelators’ Late to My Own Funeral calls to mind a number of images – hazy, dimly lit bars, tall cold beers (Pabst Blue Ribbon perhaps?), pork pie hats, harmonicas, and maybe, just maybe, some sweet beards and/or mustaches. Frontman Jonathan Jeter’s smoky, gravel-laced delivery leads the overtly blue collar, workman-like charge on Late to My Own Funeral, which shines during its most earnest moments of Midwest Americana (“Come On”) and rollicking, old fashioned rock and roll (“Eventually”). This is definitely music for a lazy day, tunes that could lull you into a relaxed state with a nice smoke and an adult libation, though this collection of tracks could just as easily anger the blood and possibly incite a bar fight. Either way you choose to enjoy Late to My Own Funeral, it’s enjoyable. The songwriting is honest and pure, which makes this album about as real as it gets. Late to My Own Funeral is a good time from beginning to end, one to be enjoyed by all – Jonathan Jeter and the Revelators wouldn’t have it any other way.
