Songs About Jane

Originally released back in June, the debut from this L.A. quartet has gained attention based on a strong single ("Harder to Breathe") and acclaim from a handful of like-minded rockers, most notably John Mayer. With their vaguely funky white-soul stylings, tunefulness and vocals that recall that guy from Jamiroquai, songs such as the pretty, down-tempo "Must Get Out" sound poised to mount an assault on Mayer's college fan base. Adam Levine's urban-romantic swoonings work best when his band really gets up on the good foot, as on "This Love," which uses piano and James Brown-like guitars to create a foundation on which Levine can obsess about beauty (including his own).
