New Tunes from The Jameses

While we wait for a debut full-length from the group, Captured Tracks is doing a great job keeping our interest piqued in The Jameses.  Today they’re releasing the group’s new Caribou/Fifth Dimension 7″.  If you recall, we were all about their track “The Haunted Rider”, and right now, it looks like we’ll be all about Caribou too!  You’ll still find a little bit of that echo-y effect running through the vocals of this track, but the vocals seem to have a different approach, almost as if they’re doing their own version of a post-rock jangle. Regardless, this should continue to keep you looking forward to the upcoming debut from this band, as this is just another little gem from The Jameses.

New Tunes from The Jameses

Late last week, Captured Tracks, one of our favorite labels, let word slip that they would be releasing the full length album by Florida band The Jameses.  No date on that yet, but you can order the band’s self-released 7″ now, which features the track “The Haunted Rider.”  This jam was kicking around my house all weekend; it’s got a bit of that hollow vocal soundtrack, giving a distant feel, but positioned next to the melody, it provide a sublime listening reaction.  Give it a try folks.
