In interviews, Jackson Scott touts his love of Nirvana, Weezer, and Pink Floyd's original mastermind, Syd Barrett. So for a young guy who (apparently) wasn't raised on lo-fi, late-'90s indie rock, Scott sure does have the lo-fi, late-'90s indie rock sound down. The Asheville, North Carolina, resident's new album Melbourne is a likeably languid exercise in homemade dream-pop that recalls an embryonic Elephant 6 collective (specifically, the Apples' Fun Trick Noisemaker) or early Elliott Smith without the obvious preternatural genius. And Scott's affinity for woozy, tape-warped warble brings to mind another Southern bedroom wunderkind, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox. Melbourne isn't perfect—it can feel a bit rudderless and half-baked in places—but it is a promising debut from a guy with a knack for melody and an experimental streak. BEN SALMON
