New Local Band Jack Lion Inspires Atmospheric Chill

Nov 3, 2014

You may recognize some of Iowa City-based Jack Lion's members from another local band, Slip Silo. But, it's not just their name that has changed. 

Jack Lion’s members unearth the early ’00s interest in connections between jazz and electronic music and refashion it for this current era. Striking a balance between jazz composition, down-tempo break-beats, and hazy atmospherics they have made their mark as one of Iowa City’s headiest and most adventurous bands. 

In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," with Ben Kieffer find out more about Jack Lion's unique blend of music and the cab ride that gave them their name.
