Jaguar Love

Saturday, March 28

Given the track record of Jaguar Love's members, it's not surprising there have been changes during the band's barely two-year history. These days, the Portland-based electro-jazz-indie band consists of only two musicians: Lead singer Johnny Whitney and guitar player Cody Votolato, both former members of Seattle's own Blood Brothers. But just two months ago, Jaguar Love also boasted Jay Clark — of Pretty Girls Make Graves fame — on keyboards and drums. Now, Clark has left the band, and in a recent announcement on the band's MySpace page, Whitney and Votolato claim the band's sound is changing, too. In a blog post, Johnny described the new music as "Daft Punk meets New Order meets Black Flag" — which probably won't be that different from Jaguar Love's current sound. Sure, there will be less keyboards without Clark, and some songs might lose their dance-y quality on account of it, but it's Whitney's trademark wailing, tortured vocals that define the band. All ages.
