The Wind-Ups are back, and still pushing ¼” tape into the red with their brand of stripped-down earworm punk and power pop out of Northern CA. Their latest release (and first for Blue Arrow) is “Jonathan Says,” a 7" tribute to Jonathan Richman, and the first single off their forthcoming second LP.
Having worked as a Swiss Army sideman for Jonathan since 2016, frontman Jake Sprecher offers “Jonathan Says” as a sincere portrait of the special aura that surrounds JR, run through the saturated analog grit and rhythmic fuzzed out power pop drone that The Wind-Ups are so fond of. The track also features Nicole Montalbano (Jonathan's partner of the last 30 years) on tamboura.
