AS JOSIAH Wolf is best known as being the drummer with Why?, an abstract hip hop act led by brother Yoni Wolf, it's a surprise hearing how much of a departure solo album Jet Lag is. For the LP of bigger brother Josiah is more like the alt folk of Willy Mason or Bright Eyes, though for me with a little less spark - Bleary Eyes, if you will. As you'd expect from a tubthumper, the best bits of the LP are the ones which have a strong rhythmic quality to them, whether through the drums themselves such as on opener The Trailer And The Truck or the guitar parts, like on Is The Body Hung or Master Cleanse. But overall, whether the solo work is likely to oust Why? as a day job is questionable.
