YOU SHOULD BE LISTENING TO: Scranton alternative roots rock band Jung Bergo
City: Scranton, Pennsylvania
Genre(s): Alternative roots rock
Years active: 2009-present
Sounds like: Eccentric pop tunes with a musky yet familiar exterior. These are songs that make you feel like you’re visiting your grandparents’ house and smell like a dusty old photo album filled with photos from a time that never existed.
For fans of: Big Star, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, The Shins, Pavement, and “The Bends”-era Radiohead
Number of albums/EPs released: Two (full-length album “Thieves” in 2015 and single “I’m a Wreck” with B-side “Lonely Lonesome Blues;” also featured on “Brew Sessions” Vol. 1 and 2, available on Spotify)
Latest album/EP: “Everything New Is Old Again,” a new full-length album coming this May
Fun fact: In the early days of Jung Bergo, Dave Connors and Jeremy Burke originally wrote three albums worth of material loosely based on and inspired by Mitchell Hurwitz’ sitcom “Arrested Development.”
