New Release: Jim From The Moon "Space, Flesh & Woe"

Jim - Guitars/Vocals/Glockenspiel - Jeff Boyd - Drums

Following up on his 2011 acoustic EP "I Am Going to Steal You," Jim's unique take on the old Irish "Sean-nos" singing, strummed and plucked to a warm acoustic guitar, Jim from the Moon teamed up with Jeff Boyd on drums and plugged it in! With his distinct vocals and willingness to explore and push conventional genres with his own unique take, this album stretches the boundaries of psych/rock. This is the 26 year old world traveler's ninth album, he is a young man with an old soul and tales to tell.

"Space, Flesh & Woe" explores areas of psychedelia, rock, and pop. Themes prevalent on the album are taken from the last year of his life; living on a boat, expanding his mind, and falling in and out of love.

The second track 'Open Sore' is available as a free download on soundcloud.

At times Jim from the Moon plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions. They flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling. Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with hints of Hendrix's blues. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears.
