The Leaf Label (2003) UK
‘Jacknuggeted’ is the first single from Dan Snaith's second breathtaking album, Up In Flames.
You'll quickly realise there has been a massive, sensational step forwards. A bold, sassy, 21st century psychedelic pop moment, ‘Jacknuggeted’ builds up a runway of deafening held keyboard tones, then takes off into a wonderland of sprightly guitar, falls away into a patch of breezy strings and vocal rustlings, then bursts into a sliding rainbow of multilayered melodies. In other words, ‘Jacknuggeted’ is one of those songs you discover a new dimension to every time you hear it. The exclusive non-album B-sides display more of Snaith's sensitive, pastoral side; an abundance of resonantly outdoorsy strummings and delicate twinklings.
