Cotton Jones

Gotta Cheer Up
Paranoid Cocoon 2009 via Suicide Squeeze
a note about this track

Prior to launching Cotton Jones (initially called the Cotton Jones Basket Ride), frontman Michael Nau led the Baltimore, Md., band Page France through three albums of folksy indie-pop. In Cotton Jones, Nau and fellow Page France alum Whitney McGraw pursue even dreamier sounds, weaving elements of folk, jazz and country into a woozily melodic quilt of Americana with psychedelic sensibilities. Cotton Jones’ full-length debut, Paranoid Cocoon, released in January, is a quiet storm of a record full of gorgeous, harmony-laden songs like “Gotta Cheer Up” that linger in the air like hazy, sweetly scented smoke long after they’re over
