"Review of "Milk Sink" by Reactor Media"

Jonah Michea Judy
Milk Sink
Self Released 2007

I was quite happy when the North Carolina based emo-acoustic singer songwriter, Jonah Michea Judy, contacted with a submission to the site. Normally, I have to tread through the abyss of MySpace pages, and search through peoples "top friends" and the like to hopefully, stumble across a musician that seems to have "the goods." And by "the goods" I mean, someone who seems to have that unique spirit to their music — demanding that you take notice. Such is the work of Jonah Michea Judy.

On first listen to this evocative singer, I was immediately transported to the early days of my college life when hordes of us would travel into downtown Philadelphia to see the then both alive and great Elliott Smith. Like Smith, Judy plays a type of song that plunges into the deep ravines and chasms of the soul. With musicians like these, it is kind of like staring into the sun; there is a deep part of you so very tempted to look but when you do, you know it hurts. And the passion that Judy sings with equates to such an experience.

Judy plays a solitary acoustic guitar, that could at times sound as soft as his breathy verses or as raw and passionate as his vocally explosive choruses. Imagine a mixture of previously mentioned Elliott Smith, with a little Trent Reznor circa Broken era and Dashboard Confessional.

It's good stuff. So take a listen (
