#songoftheday / VIDEO JAKE BUGG: “MESSED UP KIDS”

There isn’t much we can say about the insanely-talented Jake Bugg that hasn’t already been said by countless other websites, not to mention all of the world’s magazines.  Seems Mr. Bugg can do no wrong.  And we’ve got to agree with the masses here.  Usually, they know fuck all, but “Messed Up Kids” is the best song we’ve heard in days, a bittersweet mix of folk and rock with a dash of pop thrown in for good measure.  Normally when artists try to mix folk with something else they fall flat on their faces, but Bugg’s best talent is his ability to write songs that mesh these things together without seeming like he’s trying too hard.  You can’t say, you know, “Oh, he’s folk, but he’s doing a bit of a rock thing on the chorus to be risque.”  None of that.  He just writes what’s in his heart and if it sounds like a combination of different things then that would seem to simply reveal his wide variety of influences.  The bottom line?  Nothing feels forced with Bugg and “Messed Up Kids” is just another wonderful, infectious genre bender that feels au naturel.
