Jake McKelvie & the Countertops are an alternative-folk/indie-rock band from Keene, NH once (and only once) described as “one of the best up and coming musical experiences Keene has to offer”.
"It’s hard to analyse music like this, actually. It’s really like being introduced to a friend of a friend, and you just get on, and that’s pretty much it. The music is simple, the songs hummable, the delivery a little nasal, the lyrics excellent and basically you’ll either just like it or you won’t. There’s no pretence, no layers of coy artfulness, nothing much at all really beyond straightforward, to-the-point songwriting..." - Song, by Toad
