To talk about this album is like trying to describe swimming at night on mushrooms. It's refreshingly tangible and leaves lyrics on your lips and melodies in your mind. This CD is so catchy and hum-able it's damn near dangerous. Blending folk and pop with intelligent lyrics that are insightful and at times darkly funny, Junger takes us on a ride showing us the world, life and love from angles we may just not have thought of or would have not dared to. The title track 'Telepathetic' opens, ' You know I can not read your mind/ But you know everything all the time/ me I'm just a waste of rhyme/ I'm telepathetic........Brain waves washing over me/ I'm drowning baby can't you see/ I'm dying for a word from thee/ I'm telepathetic'. In 'life is weird' he explores what could very well be the day in the life of a psychopath. ' I went down to buy / some groceries and a gun/ flowers for my girlfriend/ and bullets for everyone' One could write out so many great lines from this piece of work but to hear it in full is to truly appreciate Jungers art. Jamie spent 15 years touring and recording with Vancouver's indie art rockers 'Bobs Your Uncle' and after the band split in the mid '90's he was recruited by Holly MacNarland to help her record her debut CD 'sour Pie'. Back in his home of Nova scotia Jamie teaches music from his home and is working on his 2nd solo CD.
