Music Connection New Music Critique
of 3 previously released tracks by Jim from the Moon
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. "To Live To Roam" is where Jim's potential finally blossoms as a full band fills in the blanks, boosts the energy and connects the dots. No question this power strummer would do well to take his bedroom tunes and outfit them for his nimble support trio.
======== October 21, 2012 "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
"Space, Flesh & Woe" on iTunes

Pre-release Review of "Space, Flesh & Woe" by:
Jim from the Moon – Space, Flesh and Woe"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'. The thing I liked most about this EP is that Jim stays very unconventional with his lyrics and the over-all direction of his sound. 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. This ten-track album is Jim’s ninth (which I found a little surprising considering he is only 26 years old) and explores the areas of psychedelia, rock, and pop. While those who fell in love with I’m Going to Steal You will undoubtedly miss the raw, stripped acoustics that complement Jim’s voice so well, 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. Here’s a taste of Space, Flesh and Woe. Jilted Lovers by Jim from the Moon Look for the full album out on October 1st."

Jim from the Moon's "Esqueleton" was featured today on The DIY Radio Show
"What a delightfully abrasive way to begin the show... That was Jim from the Moon with his "Esqueleton"... and it comes from his distressingly titled EP "I am going to steal you" ,... Maybe that's deeply romantic, but sounds more like kidnapping to me... He is apparently embarking on the recording of a folk/space rock debut album... now?... perhaps right now as you listen to this there is folk/space rock being created... and in a delightful tangent, the wobbly shimmer of the end of that track reminds me of Radiohead..." - Joe Skrebels, DIY Radio

Jim From The Moon Is Going To Steal You
"It’s always nice to kick back at the computer and just mellow out – take the time to listen to some cool new tunes. Folk-Rock singer, Jim From The Moon, is one particular artist I’ve really enjoyed listening to. Each song off of his latest E.P. I’m Going To Steal You is unique with no real pattern, but a true direction...
At 25, Jim has created some 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."

JIM FROM THE MOON IS GOING TO STEAL YOU
By Sally Bailey
"Jim From The Moon's bio reads as endearingly as his straight forward no B.S lyrical style. What I like about Jim is that there is not one ounce of wanker about him. We need more of that.
... The first paragraph of Jims Bio is enough to set the scene of a lad with gals on his mind and music in his blood, both of which continue to define his music to this day.
Jim makes no apologies for wanting a "pretty girl" or for having "junky looking hair" and just being a regular twenty five year old. There is something extremely genuine about the stripped back accoustic guitars and vocals that hint at an anguish yet reveal disarmingly simple stories with no corny catch lines or predictable riffage."
February 4th, 2012 Thanks to everyone who came to see us at No Kings Collective's "Leap Year" event at The Dunes in DC! Here are some video clips from the show: Sound check:

No Kings Collective presents: Leap Year featuring: Jim from the Moon... Live The Dunes
1402 Meridian PL NW
Washington, DC Doors @ 8pm
21+ Special guests Tarsier providing food for the evening https://www.facebook.com/events/229011890517379/ Get a chance to see some of the bands that made SubMerge amazing! Jim from the Moon, Jonny Grave and ACME live @ The Dunes! Jim From the Moon
http://www.jimfromthemoon.com/ 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. Jim is going into the studio this month with drummer Jeff Boyd to record their debut dark folk/space rock album. Jonny Grave
http://jonnygrave.com/html/about.php Jonny Grave is a guitarist, songwriter, singer, bandleader, teacher, musical historian, and Bluesman from Washington DC. Growing up in a very musical family, Grave was introduced to the sounds of American traditional folk music early on. At age fifteen he found himself learning slide guitar techniques from old Blues records, and by seventeen he was performing them live. The distinct sound that Jonny Grave’s music conjures is a resurrection of sorts—The music of R. L. Burnside, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson and Bukka White all find a way into Grave’s playing style. His repertoire of sound is made up of new arrangements of older Blues tunes, and deeply rooted solid originals. ACME
http://123acme.com/ ACME (a company that makes everything) is composed of Joshua Davis and Cheakaity Brown ,the duo met in late 2009 and began producing music together soon after . In the midst of creating their debut EP " Why Not" , they took on the band form and brough the EP to the live stage in late 2010. Their sound has been called almost every genre across the board but ACME's signature sound is virtually unmatched. There are traces of soul, hip hop, electronic trance, and psychedelic music in ACME's enigmatic yet oddly accessible recordings . The Dunes
