ALBUM REVIEW: 'Uniform Distortion' is the raw new solo LP from indie rock superhero Jim James, best known as the frontman of My Morning Jacket, among numerous other endeavors. Supposedly inspired by its own cover photo, which James found in the '60s counterculture magazine the Whole Earth Catalog, the album is a lo-fi homage to his classic rock forefathers, which appear to range from Buddy Holly to Thin Lizzy. While James has previously done everything from tender folk ditties to sprawling psychedelic benders, this outing is all about fuzzy guitar rock. While the songs aren't always his catchiest or most refined, what makes 'Uniform Distortion' such a pleasure to listen to is its authentic, off-the-cuff energy. Seemingly recorded live with minimal takes, you can hear James' voice and guitar occasionally falter, and he repeatedly laughs into the mic, as if he's having too much fun to care about the details. Score: 🎸🎸🎸/5 (Words by @ryanpinkard)⠀

There's a place by the lake
That you go when it's late
It was summer and the crowds were gone
And you sit all alone with
With your thoughts, gettin' stoned
Just waitin' for some peace to come

“Roll on; roll on, on the train
Brakeman, blow your whistle, throw your weight upon that chain
Make way, or whatever will be will be”

ALBUM REVIEW: 'What a Wonderful Industry' is the ninth solo album by M. Ward (also known from She & Him and Monsters of Folk). The surprise, self-released album is about people Ward has encountered in the music industry, and if the title doesn't make the sarcastic sentiment immediately obvious, the shark teeth on the cover should. Exemplifying the singer-songwriter's unique brand of rockabilly, many of the tracks, such as “Motorcycle Ride,” sound like they could have been plucked straight from the 1970s folk-rock scene. At times, the music is humorously at odds with the lyrics, like on “Kind of Human” where easy-going folk tune soundtracks a dark tale about a woman who is “part machine” and learned her meanness from the singer himself. Instrumental track “Return to Neptune's Net” reminds us of Ward's masterful guitar-work and West Coast-rock sensibilities. In his under-appreciated solo career, M. Ward has long added a new dimension to the folk-rock genre. 'What a Wonderful Industry' shows off the best of his many talents. Score: 🦈🦈🦈🦈/5. (Words by @ckduren)⠀

Some close-up shots of a work in progress. Woke up this morning with a color scheme in my head, ran and grabbed the colors 🎨 before I forgot,and got to work quickly! Old songs 🎶 I wanted to hear were running through my head and wouldn’t go away til I found them. An old Trisha Yearwood song - not usually my kind of music but was loving hearing her sing an old favorite. Then the bluesy ones from a recent movie. Has anyone see 3 Billboards Outside Ebbings Missouri? I don’t watch many movies anymore but this one is a treasure. On its surface maybe it’s about something else but it’s really about the power of love, and how sometimes we just need to be reminded that we are capable of much more than we give ourselves credit for, and that each of us - no matter what we have done or who we think we are - are made up of the same dang substrate: love ❤️ .

WOW! Hehuh, wow. the incomparable M. Ward has graced us with a surprise new album and its really fucking good. A lot more consistent and lively than 2016's More Rain, this record is a colorful pastiche of the highs and lows of collaborating with fellow musicians and other such schmucks. Keep yr ears peeled for veiled Zooey Deschanel, Jim James and Conor Oberst references, and pack some extra socks. Jesus Christ Betty what a mitzvah.... #newmusic #newmusicfriday #mward #sheandhim #zooeydeschanel #monstersoffolk #jimjames #conoroberst #brighteyes
