Jim from the Moon:

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 heavy, psychedelic sounds. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears. Jim From The Moon picked up his guitar and moved out West to the cool breeze and palm trees of Hollywood, California. Over the past year he has put together a powerhouse band of rock and roll destineers chomping at the bit to be seen, heard, and devoured. Their first release is the explosive "Beauty Queens in Skinny Jeans" which sees Jim and company tearing through time with astral guitars and drums like machine guns.

Jim From The Moon has spent this past winter (though you can hardly call it winter with all this sun) recording the follow-up to 2012's psychelectric "Space, Flesh & Woe", which prompted such claims as "you can't get much more original than Jim From The Moon" and "(Space, Flesh & Woe) stretches the boundaries of psychedelic rock." His new EP "Pretty Dope" boasts the same desire to distort and mold the spectrum of rock and roll as he sees fit. This time around, Jim is flanked by the soon-to-be world famous Pat Moley on guitar, who grooves through every tune with focused abandon, and Geoff Haba who puts the world in check with peerless drumming, which births this truth…there's a new band in town, ya heard? and you better shape up…it's Jim From The Moon.

2016 will see Jim From The Moon playing shows all around Los Angeles, so keep an eye out!

==============

Bikes: BIKES is a band... but like a good band:

Brandon - Lead Singer, Guitar, Jack-of-All-Trades, Stupid T-shirt game on fleek.

Steve - DOUBLE Lead Guitar, Piano Virtuoso, Vox (industry speak for background vocals), has fostered 37 dogs (including 22 Weimaraners)

Val - The best female drummer on the planet... and that's on record somewhere, makes the band look cool.

Vince - Bass Guitar, Synth Bass, Vox (industry speak for background vocals), Acts of Vigilante Justice, Books crappy hotels.

These four elements combine to form a transcendent musical experience that will leave you.... transcended. Listen, Love, Like... BIKES.

Space, Flesh & Woe [zoom in on liner notes]
The New Psychelectric Rock Album

Reverbnation (Physical CDs)

First Reviews of "Space, Flesh & Woe":

 

"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."

 

- Popa's Tunes

 

========================

 

"You can’t get much more original than Jim from the Moon.

 

Earlier this year, the unorthodox indie rocker released a five-track acoustic EP titled I’m Going to Steal You. There are no cheesy melodies or predictable phrasing. It is simply a compilation of honesty laid over top of groovy acoustic guitar work.

 

Jim from the Moon is back from his lunar expeditions with an electric space-rock album that boasts many of the same refreshing qualities, called Space, Flesh and Woe.

 

I think listeners will be impressed with the dark, distorted guitars and blatant drum patterns that set up a heavily depressing mood throughout the album. Space, Flesh and Woe, though entirely electric, boasts that same rawness as Jim’s previous EP, and he has an eccentric voice that ties in well with the album’s unusual-sounding instrumentals."

 

- Alex, Guitar Trump

Reviews of "I am going to steal you":

 

"With just a strident voice and acoustic guitar, 'Thanksgiving Day' heralds an aggressive, heartsick busker, possibly with punk rock roots, looking for 'the one' girl, and he wears his heart heavy on his sleeve. "Esqueleton" adds subtle effects in the track that buiid to a wild squall of a climax."  - Music Connection Magazine

 

"There is something extremely genuine about the stripped back acoustic guitars and vocals that hint at an anguish yet reveal disarmingly simple stories with no corny catch lines or predictable riffage."  - Sally Bailey, Undercover.fm

 

"Delightfully abrasive...'Esqueleton'...the wobbly shimmer of the end of that track reminds me of Radiohead..." - Joe Skrebels, DIY Radio

 

"Heard five tracks, they're great...and they were phenomenal... make sure to check them out, buy their stuff...find out more about them, that's for sure" - Pat Krane, The Independent Music Podcast

 

"...Very versatile pieces that are both honest and very refreshing when compared to much of today’s cookie-cutter tunes that all seem to follow the same rules." - Guitar Trump

 

"A heartfelt ode to the consequences of self-harming" - The Mad Mackerel, about 'Alarms' from the 'I am going to steal you' EP

 

Review of "To Live to Roam" from the Rock LP "The Year I Grew My Hair Real Long":

 

 

"I like this artist alot... and the song was pretty sweet too. It is, it's great. It's Jim from the Moon. That's right, 'To Live to Roam'..." - Radio Orphans
