Debut EP from Jets Can't Land. On 75 or Less Records.
Check out this review:

EP Premiere: Providence’s Jets Can’t Land serve up a skilled power-pop punch

Discovering pure power-pop in Rhode Island is no easy task, but Providence rock and roll quartet Jets Can’t Land seem to have it down to a science on their new EP You Can’t Linger On. A sound that’s an amalgamation of tones reminiscent of Sloan, Big Star, and Cheap Trick, the foursome keep it real with tight hooks and groovy guitar solos. Songs about the apocalypse, sci-fi films, and the shit that hurts give a sense of hopeless romantic nerdiness shouting out to the closeted individuals who also want to take someone out on a date. It sums up as heartfelt, bare bones rock that shouldn’t be overlooked.

"Coming right out of a thriving Providence rock scene, Jets Can't Land sound like they hung out with Deer Tick and co. in sweaty bars, especially with songs like “Wasted.”

motifri.com/musicgifts-2/
On their debut EP, You Can’t Linger On, Jets Can’t Land shoots up a hefty dose of ’90s indie rock fueled by feedback and flannel. The opening, “A 70’s Photograph,” is like what would happen if Camper Van Beethoven and Pavement got drunk in a practice space in Olneyville and decided to cut an album.

Marc Clarkin at Motif Magazine likes our ode to a certain Stanley Kubrick film.
"Jets Can’t Land open the show with a truck bomb of ’90s indie rock. On an added note, Jets Can’t Land have a tune called “I Can’t Do That Dave” that is a contender for my local song of the year coming in the next issue."

Track Name: A '70s Photograph
A ’70s PHOTOGRAPH
Standing on the edge of the grass
I’m thirteen again and lost in the past
Feeling like the Fourth of July
It’s Jeff Lynn again he’s getting me high
High…getting me high 

A photograph out of the blue 
It’s a picture and it used to be you 
Waiting for the TV for M.A.S.H .
Stuck in the basement and it’s leaving me fast 

Your gaze has unmade me 
Lost in a ’70s Photograph …a photograph 

Climbing up a tree with your name 
Right next to mine but it’s my heart to blame 
Waiting in the woods for the day 
Peter’s here and he will show you the way 

Your gaze has unmade me 
Lost in a ’70s Photograph …a photograph 

You got a one-way ticket yeah  
From all the bullshit left down here 
You bought a one-way ticket yeah 

Standing on the edge of the grass
I’m thirteen again and lost in the past
Waiting for a moment in time 
Back to the morning when you still were mine 
Mine…still were mine
Track Name: Digging Out
DIGGING OUT
I’ve been digging out
From all the problems that remain
You’d go home again but you can’t 

I’ve been digging out
From all the problems that remain
You’d go home again but you can’t 

I only lie
Yeah all the time
I only lie
But you can’t linger on,
No you can’t linger on,
No you can’t linger on
'Cause you’re gone…

I’ve been thinking ‘bout
All the problems I have known
You go home again but you can’t

All that’s left to me
And all the shadows they’ve flown
You’d go home again but you can’t
Track Name: Wasted (explicit)
WASTED
I know you’re wasted you’re damaged I wanted you
To hear I’m sorry, for all the things I put you through
I’d been entrusted, I busted, surrendered to
All the things unknowing, and idle
They’re all that I have now

I watched you dancing naked
I crawled up all inside
Like a little onion, an indian who wanted to hide
I know you’re wasted and damaged and now I know 
Forget the knowledge, erase it
It’s all that I have now

I watched the scenery go tumbling down
I watched this world of yours go spinning ’round
You’d been captured by the past we gave away
I see it like only yesterday

I know you’re wasted you’re damaged I wanted you
To hear I’m sorry, for all the things I put you through
I’d been entrusted, I fucked up and now I know
That I’m as damaged and wasted
As all of us are now

I watched the sun go down right in your eyes
I’ve seen the damage done the needle rise
You’d been captured by the past you gave away
I see it like only yesterday

I know I know now
Track Name: Another Day Gone Bye
ANOTHER DAY GONE BYE
Another day gone by that I’ve wasted
Another day gone by and I cant seem to face it 
this time
(But) I’ve been tryin’

Another month gone by and I’m busted
Another month gone by and it seems such a waste
(But) I’ve been tryin’

With all you left me here well sometimes I’m inclined
To pack it up and toss away
And when you left me here sometimes I seem fine 
But in my head I’m a world away

Another year goes by and I notice
Another year gone by and I can’t seem to shake
That all the time has gone by

With all you left me here well sometimes I’m inclined
To pack it up and toss away
But with you lying there sometimes I’m reminded 
A memory of you when you waved… 

Goodbye
Track Name: The Falling Sky
THE FALLING SKY
Catch a falling star if you can
I’m holding up my hands
To the sky and space
See the devil is in his place

Here I am watching things go bad
Here I am watching things go bad... again

Bet your bottom dollar bill
This dance will make you ill
And the shaman’s face
Has a look of pure disgrace

Here I am watching things go bad
Here I am watching things go bad... again

You cannot escape the falling sky
You cannot escape the falling sky
You cannot escape the falling sky

Look into my eyes and you’ll see
The way that things should be
And the poison grace
Showers on the sacred place
Track Name: I Can't Do That Dave...
I CAN’T DO THAT DAVE
Daisy daisy give me your answer do
I’m half crazy
All for the love of you

You got away with all your lying 
You had your say but I ain’t buying
I read your lips there’s no denying 
Today’s just not your day

Our fortune’s crazy and the mission’s fubared too
Your vision’s hazy
So I’ve locked the door on you

You got away with all your lying (oh my mind is gone)
I get a feeling that I‘m dying (dying for too long)
your oxygen well it’s declining (seven hours gone)
But your deception I ain’t buying (ain’t buying)

No I can’t do that Dave... I’d be digging my own grave
I can’t do that Dave... I’d be digging my own grave

You got away with all your lying (oh my mind is gone)
I got a feeling like I’m dying (dying for too long)
Your oxygen well it’s declining (seven hours gone)
But your deception I ain’t buying (ain’t buying)

No I can’t do that Dave... I’d be digging my own grave
I can't do that Dave... I'd be digging my own grave
