Jim James Essentials

Jim James Essentials

Jim James is a psychedelic rock ‘n’ roll revivalist of the highest order. The textured neo-retro solo permutations the My Morning Jacket frontman started releasing in 2013 build soothing atmospheres that make his modern-day productions feel like they stepped out of a veritable time machine. He channels the smoky soul of the ‘70s with the jazz keys, reverberating vocals, and twisty guitar walkabouts of “The World’s Smiling Now.” On the choral arrangement and cinematic strings of 2016’s “Same Old Lie” and in his gospel plea on Monsters of Folk’s 2009’s funk-beat driven “Dear God,” he flashes the flair that’s rendered every project he touches an everlasting one.
