It might be the first time you ever hear of this band Luster, but mark my words; it ain’t gonna be the last!
Behind this project, we have Jacob Haubjerg aka. ‘J.P. Jr.’, who you might have seen as the talented fellow playing the bass in both Masasolo, Palace Winter, Sleep Party People, Savage Rose and Hymns From Nineveh. Yeah, he get’s around, but you just know, that you’re only a part of these bands if you deserve to be. It requires a certain amount of talent, you see. But at some point, Jacob must have gotten the idea, that “it’s time”. Time for him to create his own songs, sing a bit and elegantly take the world by storm.
… and we’re sure glad he did! As you’ll realize, when pressing play on ‘Good Dreamer’, this dude can write. And sing, play the bass, keyboard, and guitar. Alright, so on the guitar he gets a bit of help from Brian Batz, who we all know and love from Sleep Party People and the incredibly gifted Anders Bach (Ice Cream Cathedral) on the drums. I’ve even seen a live video of a song, where Morten Søgaard of Masasolo is on the keys. If Denmark were to send a nationalmannschaft to the Indie World Cup, we’d present to the world Captain Jacob and his teammates from Luster – and we’d win the crap out of it.
So, now that you’ve seen yesterday’s X-Factor from your bed – and realized that it didn’t exactly cure the headache you’ve got from the terrible amount of drinking you did the night before – it’s quite simply time to put on this track and slowly dance your way from the bed to the fridge. Go on – feel it.
We’re hoping, that we get to see Luster in Aarhus soon, and we’re looking forward to hearing more tunes from this band. Keep ’em coming.
