JIM JAMES: “Uniform Distortion” limited clear vinyl LP. Due Date 29th June 2018

‘Uniform Distortion’ was produced by Jim James and Kevin Ratterman at
Louisville, KY’s La La Land, with Ratterman also serving as recording
engineer. All songs were written by James, who is backed on the album by
bassist Seth Kauffman (Floating Action) and longtime touring drummer Dave
Givan, with backing vocals provided throughout by Dear Lemon Trees’ Leslie
Stevens, Jamie Drake and Kathleen Grace.  “The name of my new record is ‘Uniform Distortion’ because I feel like there
is this blanket distortion on society/media and the way we gather our ‘news’
and important information. More and more of us are feeling lost and looking
for new ways out of this distortion and back to the truth… and finding hope
in places like the desert where I write this now… finding hope in the land
and in the water and in old books offering new ideas and most importantly
in each other and love,” says James.  Jim James has spent nearly two decades as the lead singer, songwriter and
multi-instrumentalist of My Morning Jacket. Lauded by The New York Times
as “the new kings of expand-your-mind, religious-experience rock,” the band
have released seven studio albums with the last three – 2008’s ‘Evil Urges’,
2011’s ‘Circuital’ and 2015’s ‘The Waterfall’ – each receiving Grammy Award
nominations for Best Alternative Album.  ‘Eternally Even’ (2016) made a #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Alternative
Albums chart upon its release. The album earned international acclaim for
its topical, psychedelic soulful approach, with Mojo declaring it to be “an
urgent if mostly meditative-sounding call-to-arms,” noting that James
“brings poetic shape and power to his politics.”  In addition to his two original solo recordings, James has also released a
pair of unique covers collections, 2009’s ‘Tribute To’ EP, featuring songs
written by George Harrison and 2017’s ‘Tribute To 2’, a full-length album.  This LP format is pressed on clear vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve.
