Review: 'Kosciuszko' by Jedediah for Tom Magazine

Album of the week for TOM Magazine.

Kosciuszko (Dew Process/ Universal)
Aussie rocker Kevin Mitchell is back to his Jebediah roots after a few years’ stint as soloist Bob Evans and member of supergroup Basement Birds, alongside the likes of Josh Pyke and Eskimo Joe’s Kavyen Temperley. Jebediah have been announced to play this year’s Splendour in the Grass festival, and it’s this, their fourth studio album, that’ll be taking the forefront alongside their career hits.

There’s much more on offer here than hit lead single ‘She’s Like a Comet’. It’s a solid return, featuring a number of strong tracks across a wide breath of style; from the quiet pop-rock of closer ‘Are We OK?’ to the effective rock hooks of ‘To Your Door’ and ‘Under Your Bed’. It’s not their best release to date, but 
Kosciuszko is, as the title would suggest, a distinctly Australian and likeable release, sure to please fans.
