Siblings hate being compared to one another, but it’s impossible to listen to Josiah Wolf‘s debut effort without thinking of Yoni Wolf, WHY?’s master wordsmith and Josiah’s brother/band mate. Perhaps if Josiah’s work stood apart from Yoni’s in any real, audible way, we could ignore the fact that the two are, in fact, related to one another. Josiah’s Jet Lag is exactly that: a tired, pale, and lackluster approach to songwriting that echoes his contributions to WHY?’s catalogue, but fails to distinguish itself on its own. Now and then, Wolf will offer thoughtful contemplations surrounded by muted chimes and generous xylophone twinkles, but if it’s a matter of Wolf’s work being particularly groundbreaking, then we’d urge him to think before taking the red-eye.
