The Joggers, who hail from Portland, Oregon, are proof that there is still a good deal of mileage left in mining the sounds of early-'80s post-punk. With a heavy debt to the spiky funk-punk of Gang of Four and a dash of the pop smarts of contemporaries like Franz Ferdinand, the Joggers craft music that is moody and jagged, yet full of bouncy, memorable hooks. Like their debut SOLID GUILD, 2005's WITH A CAPE AND A CANE is a highly listenable dose of angular and accessible guitar-driven indie rock that is sure to please fans of the sound.
