Jacks, The – “Vacant World” – [Sweet Dandelion]

This album, Vacant World, was released in 1968 by the Jacks, a Japanese psych-rock band. The music here is not really that heavy of psychedelic, with a generally melancholy sound and quite a number of low-key ballad style songs. This album is vocal-centric and not as guitar heavy as most psych, with sad sounding male vocals sung entirely in Japanese, and the occasional fuzzed out guitar?? solo. A1, A5 and B1 are the heavier, more psychedelic tracks. A2 has got some nice vibes on it. B3 sounds a bit more cheery and upbeat. B5 is a nice track with booming organ and spoken word. -Surfer Rosa
