How Far To Mexico
How Far To Mexico is a psychidyllic escapist jingle jangle indie-pop band from Ottawa. A tidy slice of summer time: a driving beat and a smooth jingle-jangle are glued together by a filling cup of jumpy bass. It’s like drifting down a river of consciousness, dancing from log to sun soaked log.
A soft tour-de-force, her vocalizations, ingenuity with looping techniques, and completely refreshing take on the often blasé instrument, the ukulele, is pushing this Experimental-Folk musician to create some of the most forward-thinking music of her generation. JoJo Worthington is a Canadian artist hailing from Waterloo, Ontario, creating soundscapes wherever she goes. With haunting choral loops, orchestral ukulele riffs, and striking spacey vocals, JoJo draws the onlookers in, slowly and with complete control. With a nod to influences of the present, St. Vincent, Grimes, Alt-J, S. Carey, and others, she finds a beautiful, swelling sound completely her own; a rare find in a sea of ukulele-based music.
