Recorded almost entirely with acoustic instruments, Jura finds the condensed Mekons dipping deeper into the traditional folk influences that informed 2007's Natural and 2011's Ancient and Modern. The presence of the ocean also makes itself known, as several of the tunes take the form of damaged sea shanties, such as "Land Ahoy!," "Shine on Silver Seas," and "An Incident off St. Kitt's

The Mekons recorded their 2019 album Deserted in a studio near to Joshua Tree National Park Other projects. In 2014, some of The Mekons, dubbing themselves the "mini-Mekons", along with Robbie Fulks, went to northern Scotland to perform, sample the local whisky, and write and record an album on the island of Jura, in the studio of world and roots producer Giles Perring, a long term collaborator with Mekon Susie Honeyman in the band Echo City

That’s why Jura, a combination between members of England’s Mekons and American folk musician Robbie Fulks, is such an interesting concept album. The mini-Mekons play electric saz, violin, accordion and banjolele, and the range of sounds feels both familiar and jarring at once. The number of vocalists contributes to that inconsistency, as well.

Recorded in the Scottish Highlands on the island of Jura around the time of that country's vote for independence; All songs were part of an impromptu recording session and written on the spot by both members of the Mekons and Robbie Fulks. Record Store Day release 11/27/2015. Robbie Fulks with a five member subset of the Mekons, called the "mini-Mekons".

Mekons Mekons, formed in 1977 Leeds, England, have an improbable history – a surprising & influential embrace of folk & country music; with occasional forays into the art world. Their mind-boggling output blurs the lines between high & low art while remaining bold, unpredictable & true to the punk ethos.

This time, "Get Up, Get Down" and "Your Love" expand his reach into funk and bedroom jams, as if to let off a little steam between his more politically and philosophically intense fare. 8. Ryley Walker, "Primrose Green" (Dead Oceans): Walker's finger-picked acoustic guitar and gentle voice guide a free-flowing set that straddles folk and soul.
