Nights At The Roundtable - Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter - 2011

Nights at the Roundtable with Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter and the title track from her latest album Marble Son.

<strong>Jesse Sykes - Mind-melting Americana.</strong>


I heard this track a few days ago and it stuck in my brain since then. Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter are one of those great bands that almost defy description, even though they consider themselves a sort of Folk/Psychedelic hybrid (sounds about right). They manage to hit all the right receptive chords and you can't really put a classification on that.

Tonight's track is the title song of their (her) latest album, Marble Son. Like all their material, it's very strong with a purely haunting quality - and maybe that's why it's stayed in my head so long.

Maybe it will you too.
