Review: Jigger – Lead Reckoning (Independent)

JiggerComprised of former members of Newfoundland indie bands Potbelly, Fur Packed Action, Bung in addition to others, Jigger fuses hard rock, pop punk and more to come up with something that boasts vast amounts of heart and passion. Wisely, Jigger doesn’t worry as much about reinventing the wheel or saving the world with lyrics as much as it simply wants to rock throughout Lead Reckoning’s dozen tracks. The band really hits their stride on tracks like “Invisibles,” “Jam Jams” and “Dirty Dreams,” all of which exemplify how they can bridge different genres of music so successfully.
