Jim of Seattle, We All Are Famous
Jim of Seattle makes a lot of different kinds of music. Take some Van Dyke Parks, stir in some Beach Boys, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Henry Mancini, and They Might Be Giants and maybe you've got a start. This is a surreal collection of animals, rainstorms and the end of the world. Jim has a music degree from a reputable institution. He has written music for the stage, for films, for Disney. Despite that he covers a Rancid song. He also does an excellent version of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" with his formerly two year- old daughter. Jim plays almost all the music. He does almost all the singing. He recorded it. He wrote most of the songs. This is from Jim's soul. Jim of Seattle makes music that is sometimes beautiful, sometimes odd, somehow just right. You want it.
