Stolen Jars – Stitches

April 19, 2013

Stolen Jars is the musical project of Cody Fitzgerald, a current sophomore at Brown University. I recently saw them open for Magic Man in Allston, MA. After about a minute into the first song, I immediately made the connection to Andrew Bird. Nearly every song Cody played involved looping his guitar three to four times over itself. It allowed him to make intricate guitar licks that that the two female vocalists could harmonize with and the drummer could then provide the power for. “Stitches” is a good idea of what Stolen Jars is all about. The track is full of beautiful bits of guitar and repeating vocals, all coming at different points in the song. Stolen Jars has a lot of promise and I really hope they get the praise they deserve.
