The Jelly Project made their second visit to KFAI’s “Live From Studio 5!” this week, and proceeded to play a raucous set of rough and tumble rock music. The four-piece is comprised of Eric Mitchell on guitar, Christopher Reifsteck on bass, Paul Solem on drums, and the eponymous Angelica “Jelly” Thomas fronting the band with powerful vocals. They were joined by Doug the Thug, Dewglass, and guest host Liz Molland on her second stint as guest host on the show.
The group was also joined by the ladies behind the “Twin Cities Chicks Who Rock” calendar for a few minutes. But once they split, the group got back to rocking pretty hard. Liz put it best when she said to Jelly, "you have a powerful, awesome voice." Tough one to argue, that.
Throughout the set, the band blasted out songs like “Fireside,” “Ginger Love,” “Legends Die,” and “Ugly Dirty,” the title track of the band’s last album. The group also played tunes from its most recent album, Debaucherous. With driving rock grooves and heavy distortion, the Jelly Project plays music that grabs your attention and doesn’t let go. So if you want to give it a listen, it can be downloaded for free on Itmusic.us
(with each track linked on this Facebook page) until this Sunday.
If you want to see the Jelly Project live, they’ve got two shows in St. Paul this Saturday: first at the Winter Carnival in downtown Saint Paul, and then later that night at Wild Tymes. If you want to get more Jelly Project, don’t forget to scope out their Facebook page.
